What if there was a whole other way to do church? One that is authentic to real-life experiences in the world. One that emphasizes the places and activities where people are already experiencing the Divine. What if the teachings of Jesus were applicable in today's real lived life? Missing Peace has spent the last five years exploring just that. Pink Haired Mermaid Baby Jesus is their story. (Book Available for Purchase Here)

Climate Crisis and Faith Response

Evidence of the current climate crisis before us becomes more convincing as the days go on. The crisis is no longer something coming. It is very much with us now! It is mostly human-caused and therefore can be resolved by all of us together. The session will review the crisis but spend most of the time on what we as people of faith can do to address the crisis in our personal lives, our work lives, our community lives, and most importantly, in our congregations. 

The Reverends Carleton and Ellie Stock from the Earth Care Working Group of the Public Witness Team of presbytery will facilitate the 45-minute hybrid discussion/workshop at 3 pm.

Presbytery History Work Group

History Stewardship

In addition to maintaining records of the early history of area Presbyterians as found in a published book, and the history of the Presbytery of Giddings-Lovejoy, the History Work Group also maintains a file on current and past churches in the Presbytery. Significant anniversaries are celebrated with a framed proclamation, and flowers or an outdoor planting. When a church closes, we meet with congregational representatives and advise what materials should be sent to the Presbyterian Historical Society or to local historical societies and appraise valuable artifacts.
