Session:

 As a Presbyterian Church, Ogden is led by an elected Board of Elders called the Session.  Our Session is composed of six elders who each serve for a term of three years on a rotating basis.  Each year as three elders rotate off the board, three more are elected by our membership to serve.  Each elder heads a committee that governs a different aspect of our church life:

Deacons:

Our other elected entity is our Board of Deacons, with eight deacons who each serve 2-year terms on a rotating basis.  The Deacons tend to the needs of the congregation.  If there is a member who is sick or in need of help, the Deacons will lend a hand or share a prayer.  They visit our homebound members, deliver meals and flowers, give or arrange for rides, set up for monthly communion, and host various functions at church.   They also support a number of charities using monies dedicated to the Deacons.
