SESSION

As a Presbyterian Church, St. Andrew is led by a group of individuals called the Session.  The Session at St. Andrew consists of 18 Ruling Elders on staggered three-year terms.  These Ruling Elders are the decision-makers on behalf of the congregation.

We, the Session of St. Andrew Presbyterian Church want to affirm that our unity in the church is based on our profession of faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.  Over the years, our church has been a church in which members are encouraged to discuss and debate current issues and ideas with open minds and open hearts. We continue to be a church that is very diverse—socially, politically, and theologically. We continue to believe in the authority of Scripture but affirm that people of good faith can read and interpret the Bible differently.

 

We rejoice that in our church, there are people on both sides of many issues, yet we find our unity in Christ within our congregation is not broken. We continue to profess our faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and we continue to seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit to help us understand Scripture and how it is to be interpreted in our world today. It is alright to agree or disagree with actions of our denomination. But together we remain committed to seeking God and God’s will in our lives, growing as disciples of Jesus Christ while loving others and serving in God’s world.

 

We ask for your continued prayers for our congregation and Session, for the Presbyterian Church (USA), and for the Church of Jesus Christ universal as together we all seek to be faithful to who God calls us to be and to what God calls us do.

 

In Christ’s love, The Session of St. Andrew Presbyterian Church ~ August 24, 2011
