What Defines Us

First Presbyterian Church Organizational Structure

The Session is composed of elders who have been nominated and elected by the congregation. Elders are called out of the congregation to serve and lead the church. Elders moderate committees and teams of Session, helping to organize our church to carryout the mission of the church. Any member of the church may participate on any committee or team.

What Is Presbyterianism?

The Presbyterian Church is church governing system with leaders, called, entrusted and empowered to give a Christian witness and to conduct ministry in service to Jesus Christ for the glory of God. The term Presbyterianism refers to how we conduct our church governing so as to reflect God’s Word. “Presbyter” in Greek means elder and a “Presbytery” is a governing body of ruling and teaching elders.
