The Session is the committee that oversees the spiritual direction of the congregation. ( E.g. Sunday morning worship, the Sacraments of Holy Communion and Baptism, visitation.) An individual Session member is called an elder, but not because they are old! It comes from the Scriptures where an elder is an overseer, a shepherd, a pastor. The city of Chateauguay and outlying regions where members live is divided into sections. Each section is appointed to an elder. A congregational member or adherent with concerns or questions may call their elder. The Session members must be members of the congregation and approved by the congregation for this position
