First Presbyterian Church (FPC) is governed by a board of Elders elected by members of the congregation. This board of Elders is called the “Session,” and it meets twice a month (once for study and prayer, and once for a business meeting). Duties and responsibilities of the Session can be found in the Polity of our denomination, the Evangelical Covenant Order of Presbyterians (ECO). Session members serve 3-year terms. The Session governs the work of the congregation through committees.
In addition to the Session, FPC has a board of Deacons, which oversees care and visitation for those who are sick and in distress, both inside our congregation and in the greater community.
