Sunday, April 29, 2018 — The Session has called a Special Congregational Meeting in the Sanctuary following worship, for the purpose of electing church officers. An important responsibility of church membership for Presbyterians is the prayerful call of leaders to lead our congregation in witness to Jesus Christ according to God’s will for this community and our age. The congregation will be electing Ruling Elders to serve on the governing board, our Session. We also will elect Deacons to lead in crucial ministries of mercy. The congregation also will elect new members to the one standing committee of the congregation, our Nominating Committee. That particular committee is completing its work at this time. You are invited to submit names to David Semmelman, the chairman of the committee, if you believe God may be calling you or someone you know to leadership.
