The Session is the ruling board of the church. An elder should be mature in the faith, exhibit certain characteristics of life, sound in the faith, be wise in the things of God and discreet in all things, and have adequate training to equip them for their calling. Session members are elected once a year and serve for three years. Session meets every 3rd  Tuesday of the month. A joint board meeting is held every three months.  All boards answer to the session.
