The Session: The elders of the congregation serve together on the Session. The Session is responsible for the oversight of all of the ministries of the congregation.

Each of these six ministry areas is coordinated by a convener and an associate convener, who work with committees, task forces, activity groups and individuals within the respective areas of concern. The conveners report on the work to the Session, and seek to ensure an atmosphere of mutually supportive, effective and compassionate ministry.
