Our People

We love our vibrant little church nestled in the heart of downtown Somerset and are fortunate enough to have some fabulous folks helping out and it is this support which allows the First Presbyterian Church to stay very active in the community.  To keep our Church working as efficiently as possible, behind the scenes we are made up of three distinct groups; Our STAFF, Our SESSIONS OF ELDERS and our DEACONS.

Our Elders

Ruling Elders should be persons of faith, dedication, and good judgment. Their manner of life should be a demonstration of the Christian gospel, both within the church and in the world.

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.”  –Isaiah 43:1

Our Deacons

The office of deacon as set forth in Scripture is one of compassion, witness, and service sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless… or anyone in distress. “Persons of spiritual character, honest repute, of exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, sincere compassion, and sound judgment should be chosen for this ministry.” –Book of Order, G-2.0201
