Officer Elections

In September and October of each year, Lakeside Presbyterian Church elects new Elders and deacons for the oversight and care of the church. When we vote for an Elder or deacon, that person serves a term of three years. A person may serve two consecutive terms (six years total), then must "sit out" one year before being eligible for elections again.

It is crucial that active members participate in both the nominations and elections of these offices.
All active members of Lakeside Presbyterian who are age 16 and up may submit nominations for the office of Elder via the form below.
