Deacons


Who We Are

Deacons are elected by the congregation upon the report of a nominating committee and serve three-year terms after they are ordained and installed. The Deacons meet every month to plan their crucial activities. 

What We Do

"The ministry of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of compassion, witness, and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress. Persons of spiritual character, honest repute, exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, sincere compassion, and sound judgment should be chosen for this ministry. (From Book of Order, Part II G-2.0201.)

The reach of the deacons is wide and diverse in the church family. They set-up the sanctuary for Worship and other events such as weddings and funerals, they visit sick, provide transportation and ensure that various publications are readily available.

Session


Who We Are
The Session serves as the governing body of Capital Presbyterian Church as it does within all churches conforming to the  Presbyterian form of government. At Capital the Session is comprised of eight Ruling Elders who are elected by the congregation via the Church Nominating Committee upon ordination and installation and serve three-year terms.
 

What We Do

Session meets on the second Thursday evening of each month. As a board, the Session is responsible for discerning God’s will as they govern the congregation and carry out that discernment.
 

All church ministries are led by the Session, which meet on the first Thursday evening of each month.
