What is an "Elder" and what do Elders do?
Elders are church members who are nominated by other church members to serve as leaders on a committee called the Session. This group acts as the main governing body of the church.
If you are interested in elder leadership or know someone who is, talk with Pastor Joanne or send the Elder team an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may ask to have any of the elders contact you to address questions or concerns. Your correspondence is kept strictly confidential. Our Elders would love to hear from you.

What is a Deacon?
Deacons are church members with a gift for compassion and feel called to care for those in need. This may include hospital visits, serving home communion, arranging for meals or transportation in emergency situations or simply sending a birthday card to those in their parish. They are lovely people who love you!
