Leadership

Session

The Session is the governing council for the congregation. It is composed of 15 individuals elected by the congregation to active service as ruling elders, together with one teaching elder, the Reverend James Sledge, who was called by the congregation to ministry at Falls Church Presbyterian Church. The Session is responsible for governing the congregation and guiding its witness to the sovereign activity of God in the world, so that the congregation is and becomes a community of faith, hope, love and witness. All members of Session are entitled to vote on all matters which may come before it. Once ordained, a ruling elder is always a ruling elder, continuing as a spiritual leader of the congregation, even when not actively serving on the Session. Ruling elders, listed below, serve three-year terms.  (Year indicates date term expires.)

Deacons

2015-07-19-Deacon SundaySo what is a deacon, and what do we do? According to the Constitution of the PC(USA)The office of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of compassion, witness and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress. Persons of spiritual character, honest repute, exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, sincere compassion, and sound judgment should be chosen for this ministry (G-2.0201).
