Change to Two Minute Promotions

It has been our custom near the end of each Stated Meeting to allow “Two Minute Promotions” from the floor of the presbytery. However, as was announced at the previous meeting, that will no longer be our practice.

SO, if you have a two minute promotion, please email the promotion text to as you would like it included in the handbook by Monday, May 2nd for the meeting on the 14th.

As part of this PC(USA) effort, PW Chair Molly McCarthy and Sue Jonas recently joined 18 other women in Tampa, Florida for PDA “Train the Trainers” Training. Trainers representing several states attended the all day training session. Our own, Ken McKenzie was there. Each woman attending the training committed to doing three training sessions per year over the next three years for their churches, communities and presbyteries. Look for some excellent Presbyterian Disaster Assistance Training soon!
