Session


Responsible for the entire mission and program of the church, the Session serves as its ruling board. Valley Church's Session consists of 15 Elders elected by the congregation for three-year terms, plus the pastor, who moderates the meeting but does not vote. Youth Elders also may be elected to the Session.

Session meets regularly at 7:00pm in the Fireside Room on the third Tuesday of most months. You are welcome to attend.
