“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve on another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” 1 Peter 4:10
The session is the group of ruling elders who guide the church in its ministries. Elders are elected, ordained, and installed by the congregation. Each session member serves a term of 3 years. There is no term limit. At Central Presbyterian Church, we gather in teams to collectively address the needs of our church family, the community and the world. Our Ministry Team Directory describes each teams’s focus. Each ministry team is led by at least one member of our session, but is comprised of members of the congregation. God gives each of us a gift for ministry.
