In the PCUSA, both lay and clergy persons are valued equally. FPC (as with every individual congregation) has three church boards: the Session, the Board of Trustees and the Board of Deacons. Each elected officer serves on their respective boards for a three year term.


The Session, which is the governing body of the church, is made up of twelve ordained elders, and is moderated by the pastor. The Session is responsible for the life and ministry of FPC. Particular responsibilities include:  leading the congregation in mission, worship, administration of the sacraments, educational programing, pastoral care, fellowship and more.
