The session is the governing body of Westminster and is comprised of elders nominated and elected by the congregation from our membership. The adult elders serve three year terms and the two youth elders normally serve two year terms. The Pastor is Moderator of the Session, which elects a Clerk and two Vice Clerks of Session annually. Westminster’s session normally meets on the third Wednesday evening of the month.

Elders have responsibility for the governance and ministry of Westminster, being charged to work to strengthen and nurture the faith and life of the congregation. Elders serve on the Committees of the Session, each of which is focused on a different area in the life of Westminster. Contact the session committees at the email addresses below, or contact the clerks at [email protected].

Members of Westminster can access each month’s agenda, reports, and committee meeting minutes at the Session Members Page. Please contact Jessica Thurnes for password information.
