Our congregation elects our leaders. We volunteer time and services, share fellowship and spread God’s love in our church and the community.
Session is our church governing body. Session manages finances, tends to administration, cares for our beautiful campus, and communicates with Presbytery of the Redwoods and Presbyterian Church USA. Session is assisted by volunteer committees for worship, Christian education, property, personnel, and benevolence. Seven people are elected to Session, for alternating three-year terms.
Deacons are the heart of our community outreach and pastoral care. Deacons offer love and charity to the sick, the grieving and the troubled. Each deacon listens for prayer concerns and human needs in our community. Nine deacons are elected for three-year terms and ordained by the church.
Safe Church: We are a Safe Church. We provide a caring environment for children, elders, and dependent adults.
We train our Elders, Deacons, staff, and volunteers about:
— the recognition, reporting and prevention of physical, mental or sexual abuse of children and youth; and
— the recognition, reporting, and prevention of abuse or neglect of elders or dependent adults, including financial abuse.
We request background checks on all people serving on Session or as deacons, and staff working with children.
