January 2020 Stated Meeting: : Minutes in Brief and Digital Resources
On January 21, 2020, our Presbytery gathered at Wayne Presbyterian Church for our January Stated Meeting. In addition to thoughtful pre-meeting conversations, installation of our new moderator (Elder Vijay Aggarwal) and vice moderator (Rev. Ashley Rossi), the examination and approval of a candidate for ordination (Greg Terry), three presentations from creative initiatives through our Dream Tank for Ministry Possibilities, with the grand prize winner West Kensington Ministry receiving $3,000 for their Friday Night Open Mics, we also remembered our baptisms and gathered and scattered from the eucharistic table. This led us to collect an offering of over $2,000 to be sent to Presbyterian partners responding to relief efforts in Puerto Rico in light of recent earthquakes. Our guest preacher was Elder Vilmarie Cintrón-Olivieri, Co-Moderator of the 223rd General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). We are grateful for the time she spent with us. What follows is a collection of resources from the recent stated meeting for you to share with your congregation to build upon our connectional spirit.
We especially give thanks for the faithful of Wayne Presbyterian Church, who served as generous and hospitable hosts for this gathering.
Our next Stated Meeting is scheduled for Saturday, April 18, 2020 (approximate time will be 10-2, location to be determined)
