The Elders consist of eight to twelve men nominated by the pastor and Elders and then elected by the congregation. Elders meet monthly. They concern themselves with three main duties: care of the pastoral office; worship services; and the spiritual welfare of members. Elders are also assigned to congregation members according to which Divine Service the member primarily attends. Additionally, Elders assist the pastor in worship services as readers of the Scripture, prayers and assistants for the distribution of Holy Communion.
