Session

"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.

Holy Cow! Consulting 

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.  

Ministry Information Form

In June 2022, our Pastor Nominating Committee completed the Ministry Information Form (MIF)  and it was uploaded to the PC(USA) website. This form will be viewed by pastors searching to find a church.  The MIF tells our story, reveals our top 10 out of 34 choices of skills and attributes desired of our future Pastor/Head of Staff, and answers 5 questions in narrative form that all searching congregations are required to answer.
