Ministries Descriptions
 
The session (elders) of First Presbyterian voted to use the term “ministries” rather than “committees” for the people who are volunteering and working in various areas of the church, since the work they are doing is ministering in some way to the people of the church, community, and beyond. Here are the ministry areas of the church and the elders who moderate them.
