Summer is upon us and your faithful partnership has blessed us with grace and discernment as we together continue to lean into our future. We are a people who diligently work – and for that we are grateful. But we are also a people who are called to diligently play together. It is in that spirit that we invite you to join us at our summer Stated Presbytery meeting – as the ministry and business of our presbytery comes together with the ministry of intergenerational fellowship, hospitality and play. After our business meeting on July 20th, join us as we play games on the Oxford Presbyterian Church lawn while enjoying grilled burgers and hot dogs. Bring our younger members and have them enjoy the fun and games!
