Session & Deacons

Elders

In the Presbyterian tradition, elders are elected by the congregation to serve on the session, together with the pastor(s) of the church. The session is responsible for governing the congregation and guiding the spiritual life of the church, so that the congregation is and becomes, a community of faith, hope, love, and witness. Elders are ordained for life and serve at all levels of the Presbyterian Church. You may contact our Session at: session@sturge.org or  clerk@sturge.org

Deacons

Deacons specialize in the area of bereavement, grief support, memorials, visitations to friends at home who are elderly, ill, or in a difficult passage in their life, and for special prayers for healing, encouragement, and/or spiritual direction. Deacons are ordained to their office for life. You may contact our Deacons: deacons@sturge.org
