The name Presbyterian is derived from the Greek word for elder. Presbyterian congregations are distinguished by electing women and men to serve in the office of elder and oversee the ministry and mission of the church. Abington Presbyterian Church has 21 elders who serve in three classes. They, with the pastors, make up the Session, the official governing body of the church.
The clerk of our session is Alice Price.
We have 7 councils that report to our session. Each Council is chaired by a member of the session.
