Committees appointed by the General Assembly and the people they employ may achieve great things, but when it comes to living God’s Word and serving Him in our communities, we acknowledge the important role of the people who make up our congregations – the communicants (church members), elders (elected Session members), adherents (attendees) and young people who form the body of our Church.
Each person plays a major role in the makeup of our church, serving our Lord in many different ways, ranging from full blown overseas missionary work, to providing meals, cleaning, Bible reading, leading small groups, playing music and prayer.
