Ministry Teams & Leadership
Leadership at FPC is primarily the responsibility of church officers, the elders and deacons:
- Elders: along with the pastors, form the Session, which is responsible for decision-making in the areas of worship, Christian education, mission, personnel administration, finance, and facilities.
- Deacons: Nancy Dreydoppel, Barbara Nore, Marta Deleon, Joe LaMagna, Melissa Price, Kathy Halfhill, Michele Marney, Deb Foster, Daniel Griggs
Those who have made a commitment to FPC by becoming a member may be nominated for church office. Terms are three years in length. New elders and deacons are elected by the congregation in the fall of each year.
