Congregational Meeting

The Session of Redeemer Church, PCA, has called a Congregational Meeting on Sunday, February 3, 2019 to elect officers in our church. The Congregational Meeting will be held during the Sunday School hour (9:45 am - 10:35 am) in the sanctuary.

Those men who are elected to the office of Elder and Deacon will be ordained and installed on the following Sunday, February 10, at 5:00 pm, during our anniversary service.

Standing for Election

We have four Elders and six Deacons standing for election. These men have been nominated by the congregation, have completed a rigorous officer training program, and have been examined and approved by the Session to stand for election.

Here is a little information to help you get to know them, if you don't know them already.
