A Presbyterian congregation is led and governed by a council of Elders called a Session.  They have the primary responsibility to manage ministries and missions through committees of members and friends, to be active in the community in the name of Christ, and to serve in the larger denominational levels (the presbytery, the synod, and the general assembly).

Committees of the FPC Session are:

Christian Education, Congregational Life and Membership, Finance, Mission and Evangelism, Personnel, Property, Steering, and Worship.

Ordained PC(USA) Elders currently serving on Session are:

Cathy Blackburn (Worship, Nominating)

David Butler (Property, Steering, Commissioner to Presbytery)

David Horne (Property, Personnel)

Kurt Jackson (Mission and Evangelism, Worship)

Amy Mayhue (Congregational Life and Membership, Steering)

Teresa Mayhue (Christian Education, Clerk of Session)

Regina Robertson (Congregational Life and Membership, Nominating)

Matt Sweatt (Personnel, Finance, Worship)

Tami Thompson (Christian Education, Mission and Evangelism)

Bruce Weems (Mission and Evangelism, Finance)

Our Clerk of Session is Teresa Mayhue.  The Session typically meets the fourth Sunday of the month at 12 noon in the office conference room.  All meetings are open to the membership of the congregation.  The moderator of Session is Scott White, installed pastor at FPC/Ada.
