Who are We?
 
We are God’s people who respond to the goodness and grace of God
in our every day lives. We are the
church both in the doors of 1455 McIngvale and in the world. We are the hands, feet, eyes, and ears of
Christ in this world. We worship twice weekly, study often, fellowship frequently, and live alongside one
another while trying to reflect God’s way in this world.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Who are our Leaders
 
From among the congregation, the church elects leaders called elders who serve on a session that meets often to
help make decisions in the church. These elders serve on various committees in the church for which they often
serve as chairpersons. Since we are a connectional church, these elders are also Presbyters which mean they (if elected as a delegate)
have voice and vote at the Presbytery level where they serve alongside the pastor. The current elders are:
Jessica Nicklay
Jimmy Hill
Leslie Bierman
John Cunningham
Mabry Anderson
Ray Hill
Wendy Jue
Carla Samuels
Debra Brown
Jim Franks
Erin Fussell
