GCT Invites Session Reps to Attend Regional Meetings

The Generative Catalyst Team (GCT) invites session representatives (2 or more) to work together in seeking God's leading in creating a new vision for our presbytery mission. 

In the
letter sent to sessions, the representatives are asked to meet with other regional churches to share their responses to three questions. 

1. What are the unique resources and capabilities that God brings together in your congregation?
2. What are the unique needs and opportunities where God has planted your congregation?
3. What particular focus now energizes and animates your leadership?

Redecorating the PLR Offices & Library
We need someone to redecorate the  PLR offices, including the newly emptied (soon) library space into a conference room area. This might include some handyman work taking the bookcases off the walls in that room, plus decorating that space and others with posters, art, etc. 

We will also have the bookcases to give to anyone who is interested in coming and taking them away.

We will be posting volunteer ministry opportunities in our Presbytery for various things like coordinating the Youth Triennium and other such “jobs” that are no longer handled by the PLR staff.
