Newport follows the Presbyterian form of governance.  We participate in the Seattle Presbytery, within the national PCUSA based in Louisville, Kentucky.  According to our Book of Order, ordained Elders from the congregation make decisions at monthly Session meetings and convene committee meetings as listed below.  Ordained Deacons from the congregation provide care for our members within our ministry units.
