The work of the Session is divided amongst several Teams.
- Deacons Ministry
- Finance & Investments
- Mission & Outreach
- Spiritual Formation
- Worship & Music
All Teams are appointed by and accountable to the Session. Each Team has a Session member to serve as liaison or chairperson. Orientation/training is provided for Team members as new people become involved in the work of our congregation. Each year, Teams prepare a proposed Team budget with designated line items.
Our annual Congregational Activity Report highlights the work being done by all of the teams. (Download PDF)
