what do elders do & how do i become one?

The group of active ruling elders, elected by the congregation, who make decisions for the running of the local church and serve as spiritual leaders of the congregation. The session has responsibility and power to: provide that the Word of God be preached and heard, primarily through worship; authorize the celebration of the sacraments; receive and dismiss members; provide for the education, ordination, mission, and care of members; oversee financial stewardship and church property; and maintain discipline.  To become an elder, you are chosen by our nominating committee and voted in by the congregation. An elder's term is three years, and they can serve up to two terms.

what do deacons do & how do i become one? 

Being a deacon is much more than just the miscellaneous jobs that we do around the church, it's a calling. Service to our church and the greater community is what we're all about!

The regular responsibility of the Deacons is to make sure the sanctuary is ready for each and every time we come together to worship. Every Saturday, as well as for several special services like Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, and Christmas Eve, one or two Deacons straighten the pews and set up the coffee so that the sanctuary is ready for worship. Additionally, for the first Sunday of each month, we set up communion. Deacons arrange for, provide, and set up palms for Palm Sunday, lilies for Easter, and poinsettias and decorations for Christmas as well as the typical needs of service like candles, pews, and communion.  

Deacons also lead and coordinate several missions efforts, which you can read more about here.
