Session, Governing Body of the Church

In the Presbyterian Church, the Session is the governing body of the church and is made up of ordained ruling elders. These people are members of the church and are called by God and chosen by the congregation to serve the Church. In Carrollton Presbyterian Church our Session is made up of 12 ruling elders and our pastor, who serves as moderator. The Session meets monthly or as needed and manages the work and business of the church. Members serve a three year term. The Session is made up of three "classes" which rotate off in the year of their class designation. Each elder on Session chairs or serves on a committee. Our committees are Administration, Buildings & Grounds, Christian Education, Communication, Evangelism,Fellowship, Member Care, Stewardship & Finance, Outreach, and Worship. The Session will also have a Clerk of Session who takes minutes at each meeting and keeps records.

At Carrollton Presbyterian we also have a College of Elders made up of all non-serving ordained elders. We have many members who have served as Elders in the past. This group works in a variety of ways to serve the needs of the church and its members.
