"So he shepherded them according to the integrity in his heart, and guided them with his skillful hands."     -- Psalm 78:72


THE SESSION   

In the Presbyterian system of government, the Session is a body of elders elected as representatives of the congregation.  They have the responsibility and the power to provide for the worship, ministry, education, fellowship, mission, service and life of that particular church.  The session consists of the pastor and the elected elders.  Elders are those members - men and women - who have been called to serve their church.  That calling is confirmed by the process of nomination, election and ordination by the Presbytery of the church's jurisdiction.  That ordination is to the office of Elder and extends to perpetuity.  Once an elder, always an elder, whether currently on the Session or not.
