Session Members


What is a "Session?"

Twenty-one men and women from our congregation serve as elders. Together with the pastors (also called “teaching elders”), they make up our Board of Elders, or Session. Elders are responsible for overseeing the spiritual health of the congregation as well as the congregation’s faithfulness to God’s mission.

Session meets regularly to pray and discern God’s direction for First Pres and oversee business and ministry decisions. A subset of Session, called Trustees, oversees the church budget and ensures financial integrity. First Pres’ pastors and senior leaders report to the Session and together keep Christ at the center of the church.  

Regular Session Meetings

Session meetings are open to members to observe. (Only active elders speak and vote.) Please contact Elizabeth Roth to reserve a seat if you plan to attend.
