February 16 Presbytery Meeting

Please join the Presbytery of West Virginia for the February 16 Stated Presbytery Meeting at Kanawha United Presbyterian Church in Charleston. In addition to the afternoon's business, the morning's educational focus will be a visit from J. Herbert Nelson, Stated Clerk of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The Reverend Dr. Nelson will address Presbytery and preach the sermon during the worship service. To learn more about Dr. Nelson, click here.

The proposed amendments to the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Part II The Book of Order, will be voted on in the afternoon. The amendment booklet is available here. A video outlining the amendments will be posted by February 12. A question-and-answer time will be offered during lunch for those interested.

Before the meeting, you are invited to watch the Overview of the Day: Highlights and What to Expect video, which will be posted on the presbytery website and emailed to participants no later than February 12. It is for all who would like to know more about the business of the day, but it is especially helpful for first-time attendees.

The Presbytery is now providing an opportunity to engage in mission at each Stated Presbytery Meeting, with each Presbytery Commissioner encouraged to bring an item designated by the host church to benefit one of its missions. For the February 16 Stated Presbytery Meeting, Kanawha United Presbyterian Church has requested Ensure nutrition supplement drinks, which will be donated to Covenant House's AIDS ministry. 

Please remember that the presbytery no longer prints meeting packets except upon request. The packet will be emailed to those who receive our newsletter and posted on the presbytery website on February 6; please either print a copy at home or download the packet in advance to view on your phone or tablet as WiFi will not be available at the church on the day of the meeting. If you wish to request a printed packet from the presbytery, please contact the office by February 13.
