They had appointed elders for them in each church, with prayer and fasting they entrusted them to the Lord
Acts 14:23 NRSV
The Session is the governing board of the congregation. In the PC(USA) system, there are Elders, Deacons, and Trustees, that help govern the church. At Springfield, we have a 'unicameral' board, which means that our Elders serve as Deacons and Trustees as well. We have six Elders that serve two year terms and have one renewable term for a total of a possible four years service.
The Session, composed of members of the church who have been called by a nominating committee, listen to the concerns, joys, and needs of the congregation and through prayer and discernment, help to make wise decisions as we move forward as a church of Christ in every age.
Current Session Members are:
Sharon Pappas, Clerk of Session
