Session is the elected body of Elders who are responsible for the governing of the church and ensuring the faithful witness of the church to Jesus Christ. This is a praying and discerning group - they don't just make sure we stay on budget (though they do that too), they listen for the Holy Spirit's leading and guiding for our church.
