New Directory for Proposed Worship: A Conversation Facilitated by Rev. Jesse Garner and Rev. Ken Ross
Monday, January 9, 2017 from 10:00 to 11:30 am at the Presbytery Office
Come to learn about and discuss the proposed changes to the Directory for Worship; some of which include more accessible/user friendly language, better organized, and a simplified structure – all with a variety of worshipping communities and cultural contexts in mind.
Together they review the work of synods, review and seek to resolve controversies in the church, and are responsible for matters of common concern to the whole church. They affirm and celebrate new ministry initiatives and serve as a symbol of unity for the church. As a gathered assembly they “seek together to find and represent the will of Christ” (Book of Order F-3.0204). Recommended actions requiring a change in the PC(USA) Constitution (Book of Order and Book of Confessions) get forwarded to the 171 presbyteries for their considered approval.
