Greetings, Presbytery of Philadelphia General Assembly contingent!
As I trust you are all aware by now, the Office of the General Assembly (OGA) has alerted us that this year’s GA will be a virtual one, with a plenary session on June 19 and the business meetings on June 26 and 27.
As the particulars of how this will take place – including how you will be trained and oriented for your role – continue to unfold, we believe it would be better stewardship of your time to postpone the Presbytery of Philadelphia GA training originally scheduled for this Saturday, May 2 to a later date.
HOWEVER, please know you will still be commissioned during the worship service of our stated Presbytery meeting which will be held via zoom on SATURDAY, MAY 16 (10:00 a.m.).
In order for us to be as prepared as possible for all technical contingencies, please send a picture of yourself to [email protected] by Monday, May 4 that could be used as part of a collage to introduce you to the Presbytery as part of the commissioning service.
We’ll send updates with other info on both the Presbytery meeting and the rescheduled training as they become available.
Peace and Blessings,
Kevin and Ruth
- Rev. Ruth Faith Santana-Grace, Executive Presbyter
- Rev. Kevin Porter, Stated Clerk
