Starting this year, you’ll be hearing from me, your Session Correspondent, after all Session meetings and perhaps on other occasions.
Your Session (see the list here and meet the new elders here) is elected by the congregation and ordained as elders to govern our congregation. It’s not a precise analogy, but generally the Session is like a board of trustees.
We meet monthly, and more often if called for. Your newly-elected Session convened for the first time on Tuesday evening.
This was mostly an organizational meeting – communion serving assignments, attendance at Presbytery meetings, ministry updates.
The emphasis this year is on church growth – in engagement, programs, attendance and giving (speaking of which, have you returned your pledge?). Plan on attending our annual congregational meeting after worship next Sunday for elaboration.
Thanks for reading, and stay tuned.
