The Session is the council for the congregation.  It is responsible for governing the congregation and guiding its witness to the sovereign activity of God in the world, so that the congregation is and becomes a community of faith, hope, love, and witness.   The session is composed of elders (men and women) elected by the congregation, together with pastors and associate pastors.

The Clerk of Session manages the records of the Session.  Correspondence and inquiries to the Session are welcomed by the Clerk. 






Custodian

Steve Setto

Although our church is "God's house", Steve treats it like his own.  He makes sure our facilities are clean, orderly, and operational for all who call this church home. 






Deacons

Katelyn Willyerd

Send Email

Deacons are the caregivers of the church and are ordained to serve the congregation.  We like to think of ourselves as the trustworthy “sheepdogs" that assist the shepherds in caring for the flock. 

Katelyn is currently serving in her third year as a Deacon and second as Deacon secretary. Katelyn is married to Scott, a church Elder. Together they have an actual sheepdog of their own who carefully manages their herd of two young children. Four generations of Katelyn’s family currently attend Faith Church, so it quite literally feels like home!
