Our Presbytery offered a training for Clerks of Session in the wake of all the changes to the new Book of Order – the denomination’s compilation of doctrine, policies, and procedures. The clerk gave a brief overview of those changes to the session at this meeting. More information can be found in the Presbytery news below.

Session approved:

  • A Paint & Sip event for the nursery school moms on December 15. They will serve wine and appetizers using Sheffield Hall.

From Finance:

  • Motion to authorize spending up to $500,000 of our invested funds for the roof repair project at COG.
  • Motion to Authorize Finance to move forward applying for a PILP loan up to $1 million with the understanding that the intent is not to take out more than $500,000 from this loan and that further approval would be required to exceed that amount. It was also noted that the loan is for 20 years, with no pre-payment penalty.

The MOTION was made to forward the recommendation to the Committee on Ministry that Rev. Webber transition from covenant supply to an installed associate minister.
