New Presbytery Website to be Unveiled!

During the meeting of presbytery on August 15th, our completely re-built website will be unveiled! Our Temporary Communications Coordinator, John Johnson, has spent part of his sabbatical this summer working on this rebuild. We look forward to exploring what this new and improved website has to offer!
Register for August Presbytery Meeting

This past Monday, the Stated Clerk sent a mass email to all on our electronic mailing list with instructions for registration (which is required) for the August 15 Presbytery meeting. If you didn't receive it, check your spam/junk folder. If you need the email sent again, let David Vaughan know. <statedclerk@salempresbytery.org>  (This is just like the USPS: we can drop the mail at the post office but have no control on its delivery!)  The Stated Clerk will reply to all registrations beginning August 13.
