Every Sunday, our Presbytery’s congregations worship Jesus Christ in eight different languages. You come from North America, Africa, South America, Europe and across the continent of Asia.
Some of your families have been here for many generations. Some of you have only recently arrived. We are grateful for all of you and for your presence among us. In these turbulent days, please know that we are praying for you, just as we are praying for “all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity” (I Timothy 2:2).
Your Presbytery Co-Leaders

"I love the PCUSA. How often does your organizational headquarters send a regional flunkie a sympathy card with lots of handwritten love notes? Made me cry, you beautiful people." Karen Claassen, Facebook, January 23, 2017  More
