The Celebration Session is the governing body of our Presbyterian congregation. Session normally meets on the 3rd Sunday of each month following worship. Session is made up of Ruling Elders and Teaching Elders. Our Pastor, the Rev. Dr. Tom Dendy, is our Teaching Elder and serves as Moderator of our Session. The Ruling Elders are church members, both men and women, who are elected by the congregation, trained and examined by the current Session, and then ordained and Installed to active service on the Session. Session is organized in three Classes that rotate over a three year basis. Annual Ruling Elder elections and training are typically held in the fall. Rotation of the Classes and Ordination/Installation of newly-elected Ruling Elders typically occurs at the end of January each year.
