We have 12 ruling elders, comprising our session, and 2 teaching elders, Pastor Eric Peterson and Commissioned Lay Pastor Leesa Birdsall.  Each of our 12 ruling elders oversees an aspect of our church's life and governance, assisted by committees for each area.

Joining one of the committees is a great way to become more involved in the life of the church.  Each committee meets on a regular basis and works with the responsible elder to listen for Christ's guidance, discern the needs of the congregation, and work to find solutions and innovations to help our church reach our missional goals.  If you would like to explore committee membership as a way to serve this congregation, please contact one of the elders shown below.
