OFFICER TRAINING for RULING ELDERS AND DEACONS

Dear Colleagues and Friends:

There were 26 participants from seven churches at the first Officer Training. All seemed to find it beneficial. The next two on the schedule are coming soon and a new one has been added on March 25.

Saturday, February 18, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm at First, Goshen
          8:30 refreshments and registration begins

          33 Park Place, Goshen, NY 10924

Sunday, February 19, 2:00 - 6:00 pm at Korean Presbyterian Church of Westchester
          1:30 refreshments and registration begins

          50 Pintard Avenue, New Rochelle, NY 10801

Saturday, March 25, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm at First, Jeffersonville
          8:30 refreshments and registration begins

          4907 State Road 52 (Main Street), Jeffersonville, NY 12748
          (This one was added at the request of all our church Sessions in Sullivan County
          and the pastoral leaders, all of which committed to attend. Others are welcome!)

This invitation is for all Ruling Elders and Deacons:
  • those who are soon to be ordained and installed;
  • those newly ordained and installed elders and deacons; and
  • those who are continuing on Session/Council and the Board of Deacons, having been ordained and installed in years past, yet would appreciate a refresher course or a bit more knowledge on the Constitutional questions.
The outline of this training will be the ordination questions for Ruling Elders and Deacons and the topics covered will include Presbyterian/Reformed theology, polity, history and social witness. The training offered on these two dates is identical.

If any of your Ruling Elders or Deacons are planning on attending, please let me know ASAP ( Gavin@hudrivpres.org or 646.546.0522), so he can email the study booklet and have the correct number of handouts prepared.
 
God bless.
