As there were in Old Testament times elders for the government of the people, so the New Testament Church provided for persons with particular gifts to share in governing and ministry.
Elders and Deacons are chosen by the people. Together with Ministers of Word and Sacrament, they exercise leadership, government, discipline and pastoral care, have responsibilities for the life of a particular church as well as the church at large.
Session gathers every second Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the Deacons Room to explore and tend to the vision and ministries of the church.
Deacons meet every third Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the Deacons Room. The Congregation gives a special offering for the Deacons’ work.
