Church Officers


Memorial Presbyterian Church is led by Elders that make up the Session. These individuals are “chosen by the congregation to discern and measure its fidelity to the Word of God, and to strengthen and nurture its faith and life. Ruling elders, together with ministers of word and sacrament, exercise leadership, government, spiritual discernment, and discipline and have responsibilities for the life of a congregation as well as the whole church, including ecumenical relationships.” (Book of Order, G-2.0301)

MPC’s 16 elders make up the Session of our church and chair the 12 committees that support our many ministries. Our church committees are always looking for people to join us in serving the church and community. Please contact one of these Elders if you are interested in serving on a committee.

Memorial Presbyterian Church also has as a caring ministry, a Board of Deacons. “ 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, for 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.” (Book of Order, G-2.0201)

MPC’s Board of Deacons serves the congregation with energy, imagination, and love through activities such as Care Circles, First Friends, Home Communion, and many other ways that minister to those who are in need, both within and beyond the church.
