Presbytery Gathering Highlights

The September Presbytery Gathering will be held in person at Wayside Presbyterian Church. For those who are unable to be in person, we will provide a zoom option, although participation in all aspects may be limited. Rev. Dr. Michael Wilson will lead our learning time and help us think about making faithful, creative decisions together. (Yes – this is his dissertation topic. He promises it will be interactive and interesting! If at all possible, come in person!)

We will worship together, including communion, Witness to the Resurrection, and the Presbytery Moderator Matt Randolph preaching. We will welcome new members of the presbytery and celebrate the retirement of Rev. Daniel Erdman and Rev. Dr. Roger Rabey and Ordination Anniversaries. There will also be updates on presbytery 2022 finances, a first read of the 2023 presbytery budget, and a report from COM about minimum Terms of Call.

Stay for Lunch!: Those who wish to do so will have the opportunity to break bread together over lunch and fellowship. Please note that the cost of lunch is $10 per person.
