Our congregation is organized with six Elders who, along with the Pastor, make up the Session. Two Elders are elected annually for a three-year term. The Session is responsible for everything that happens within the church. The Session is responsible for both the spiritual welfare of the congregation and the maintenance of the physical buildings.
There is a six person Board of Deacons who are the caring arm of the church.
Except for during the summer months, the church has a church school for the children and youth. Short term classes for adults are also held throughout the year. During the summer, the church participates in the community union Vacation Bible School.
The Presbyterian Women are active in the church. They are organized into an evening circle group. They are scheduled to meet on the first Thursday of each month (September - May).
What We Believe
- God - Father and Creator of the universe
- Christ - the incarnation of God on earth
- Holy Spirit - the presence of God in the world and in the believer
- Church - a universal company of Christ's followers
- Forgiveness of Sin - made possible by the crucifixion of Jesus
- Life Everlasting - shown by the resurrection of Jesus
- Bible - the inspired word of God
The Bible is the most authoritative source for faith and preactice, but Presbyterians are also guided by the Creeds and Confessions of the church.
There are two sacraments which are instituted by Christ. Baptism is a symbol of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. The Lord's Supper is a time to renew faith and strengthen participants for the duties and privileges of Christian service.
Get To Know The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one God, the Holy One of Israel, whom alone we worship and serve.
God comes to us in free and undeserved favor in the person of Jesus Christ who lived, died, and rose for us that we might belong to God and serve Christ in the world. Following Jesus, Presbyterians are engaged in the world and in seeking thoughtful solutions to the challenges of our time.
Presbyterians affirm that God comes to us with grace and love in the person of Jesus Christ, who lived, died, and rose for us so that we might have eternal and abundant life in him. As Christ’s disciples, called to ministry in his name, we seek to continue his mission of teaching the truth, feeding the hungry, healing the broken, and welcoming strangers. God sends the Holy Spirit to dwell within us, giving us the energy, intelligence, imagination, and love to be Christ’s faithful disciples in the world.
More than two million people call the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) their spiritual home. Worshiping in 10,000 Presbyterian congregations throughout the United States, they engage the communities in which they live and serve with God’s love.
