Calling on all Preachers within Savannah Presbytery!

January 10, 2019

Would you like an opportunity to preach in another church within our presbytery? This is a chance to “recycle” one of your best sermons. Would you like your congregation to have a chance to hear a fresh voice from a presbytery colleague? Such an opportunity could help strengthen our Presbyterian connections. We have both appreciated opportunities to participate in our annual pulpit exchange and encourage you to join us this year as we mix things up within the presbytery. This year, we are assuming the responsibilities for arranging this event. We thank Eric Beene for organizing the swap for quite a few years. It’s taking two of us to fill his shoes!

The Presbytery’s Pulpit Swap is held on Sunday, February 17, the weekend of the February Presbytery meeting and the Faith Enrichment Conference. If you would like to participate in this swap, please let Pete Ullman know by Monday, January 28th. Please also let him know your top choices for placement (if you have one) as well as any churches you would rather not visit. You can contact Pete by email at pastorpetejpc@aol.com or through his cell phone at 931-248-5240.

When we know those participating this year, we will make a list, check it twice, and post assignments by February 1. It is then up to you to contact the church to which you are assigned in order to supply them with what they need for the bulletin for Sunday, February 17.

If there are questions, let us know. We look forward to your participation in this tradition as we strengthen our Presbyterian connections. 

In Christian Service,

520 Washington Avenue in Ardsley Park
Presents:

Foote Lecture Series

“Used, Very Good:
Claiming Our Presbyterian Call in This Culture”

Presented by Rev. Jill Duffield,
Editor of Presbyterian Outlook Magazine
Who cares about Presbyterians anymore?  In this culture of “nones” and “dones” what does the Presbyterian part of Christ’s body have to offer the world God loves?  Might God be doing a new thing through us?  Perhaps the church, like books, isn’t near death, but is instead on the cusp of a radical reinvention that will spread the Word in ways we never could have previously imagined.  We will explore how being “discarded from the collection” lets us loose into a world desperate for Good News so that one day God will declare us, “Used, very good.”
Saturday, January 30
6:00 p.m. Dinner in Stewart Hall  $7/person, reservations requested
7:00 p.m. “Discarded from the Collection:
Who Cares about Presbyterians Anymore?”
