The Session of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church Aurora will meet this evening.
Presbyterians are one of the few denominations in the world known mainly by the way it governs itself. The word “Presbyterian” comes from the Greek “presbuteros” that means “elder.” We are a church governed by elders. In each congregation there is a “teaching elder,” commonly called the minister or pastor, as well as a number of “ruling elders,” men and women who share the leadership, pastoral care and oversight of the congregation with the minister. Together, they are called the session.
