A Presbyterian congregation is led and governed by a team of elders called a Session. They have the primary responsibility to manage ministries and missions through a committee 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 Session are:
Christian Education, Congregational Life and Membership, Finance, Mission and Evangelism, Personnel, Property, and Worship.
Currently serving on Session are:
David Butler (Congregational Life and Membership, Action Task Force, Commissioner to Presbytery)
Becky Compton (Christian Education, Mission and Evangelism, Action Task Force)
Terry Holman (Property, Action Task Force)
Teresa Mayhue (Christian Education, Clerk of Session, Alt. Commissioner to Presbytery)
Cathy Blackburn (Worship, Property, Nominating)
Amy West Mayhue (Congregational Life and Membership, Action Task Force)
Regina Robertson (Congregational Life and Membership, Personnel, Nominating)
Matt Sweatt (Worship, Finance, Personnel)
Bruce Weems (Mission and Evangelism, Worship, Finance)
Our Clerk of Session is Elder 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.
