"Bear one another's burdens..."

Accompany  Another

At SACPC, our Session is made up of 18 Ruling Elders elected by the congregation, and our ordained ministers. The Pastor/Head of Staff acts as the moderator of Session and is supported by a Clerk of Session. The Session meets each month to discuss and make decisions about church ministry focus, policies, and to discuss comments, questions, and concerns shared by members of the congregation.


Our Pastor Nominating Committee is journeying through the pastor search process, seeking to hear the call of Christ and “to participate in God’s own choice” for our next head pastor.  Some of this journey included engaging with Holy Cow! Consulting to assess where the Holy Spirit is guiding our congregation. Results from a congregation-wide survey were recently presented to church members and the PNC hosted  three listening/feedback sessions between May 18 - 24, 2022.

The nominating team invites members to prayerfully consider individuals and submit their names as candidates for either Elder or Deacon office for the class of 2025.  

SACPC seeks loving and dedicated Christians who will full-fill the duties and responsibilities of the particular office to which they feel called and are elected; who will make every effort to attend meetings; who will give as freely as possible of their time and resources; and who will be faithful in attendance at church services and other church activities.
