September 26, 2017 Presbytery Meeting

Dear Awesome Presbyterians,

I am writing to invite and encourage you to attend our September 26, 2017 presbytery meeting at Southminster Presbyterian Church, Waukesha. Through our work together we celebrate our connectional nature as the church and affirm what God is doing in our midst even as we discern what God will do. From keynote speaker, Rev. Denise Anderson, we’ll learn more about the intersection of race and poverty, two issues prevalent to our region, state, and nation; and therefore, of great concern to us as the church in the world. Our meal table will transition to our communion table in our worship together as through song, prayer, and word we give thanks to God and seek God’s blessing for our continued work as the Presbytery of Milwaukee. September 26 is a good day to be Presbyterian!

The schedule:

3 pm - Registration

3:15 pm - First time orientation

4 pm - Business meeting

5 pm - Keynote: Rev. Denise Anderson, co-moderator of the PCUSA. “The intersection of race and poverty.”

6 pm - Dinner

 Until we meet, may Christ’s peace enfold you.

Rev. Ann Gibbs, Moderator
