Welcome to the first installment of “News From Your Session”

Each month the elders will provide some highlights of the current month’s Session meeting. In each meeting we review minutes and recent communications, get committee reports, and get updates on Presbytery business. We receive a devotional, pray together, consider RPC and RPDS concerns, member needs, and mission in our community. Remember, that you’re always welcome to contact elders with your questions and concerns.

Here are some highlights of the September Session meeting
