Plan now to receive the Joy Offering
Each year during the Advent and Christmas season, we turn our eyes to Bethlehem and celebrate the wondrous gift of Jesus Christ, our Savior. By giving to the Christmas Joy Offering, you honor this gift by providing assistance to current and retired church workers in their time of need and developing our future leaders at Presbyterian-related schools and colleges equipping communities of color.

Course on Worship and Sacraments for Christian Educators, CRE's, and Elders:
 
The Faith Formation Workgroup presents a course on how we worship as Presbyterians. It will explore the theology and order of our worship. The class meets from 5:45 - 8:45 in the Presbytery office, beginning January 7. This is for anyone who is interested, but those who want credit may receive three credits as seminarians, commissioned ruling elder candidates, and educators seeking certification. Participants may take it for credit at Ecumenical Theological Seminary by registering there. For a course syllabus, or to sign up, contact Al Timm at allen@detroitpresbytery.org.
