Session

Sharing Hope from the Heart of the Highlands

At the heart of Presbyterian tradition is the belief that God calls people to serve using their gifts. As a church, we live this out through a “representative” style of leadership. The Session is a board comprised of women and men tasked with leading the business of the church on behalf of the people. They are called “elders” and they are elected by the congregation to serve in three-year terms.

Serving as an elder is an experience in spiritual leadership and growth. The Book of Order describes the task of elders to “exercise leadership, government, spiritual discernment, and discipline and have responsibilities for the life of a congregation as well as the whole church.” These individuals in the church act in faithful and wise use of their talents and energy to support the nurture, education, mission, fellowship and stewardship of the church and its resources.

Session meets the third Wednesday of every month (except July) at 6:00 p.m. in the Session Room of the Pleune-Mobley Center.
