Our Thika Partnership Team's Visit to Kenya

Not to be missed! Our presbytery 's Thika Partnership team visited Kenya for a Partnership conference. ...

At the February 22 Presbytery Meeting, the Mission Interpretation Ministry Team is asking each congregation to make a pledge to Shared Mission of the Presbytery, Synod, and General Assembly.  Each of these councils conducts mission. The Presbytery trains and equips leaders for ministry. Your mission dollars also support ministry with youth and young adults on the college campus and in the city of Detroit (Barnabas Youth Opportunities and the Second Mile Center). The General Assembly sends mission co-workers around the world. Will your congregation join the mission support of the Presbytery? We invite you to make a pledge and bring it to the February Presbytery meeting. Each congregation was sent a packet with the pledge and remittance forms, as well as the Per Capita Assessment for 2014. And thank you for your mission dollars in 2013. Much was accomplished last year in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.          

The Book of Order has been changed to require overtures from presbyteries to have a concurrence from at least one other presbytery. The overture part must be verbatim, but the rationale can be changed at will. This is an opportunity to draw greater interest in the work of the General Assembly. G-3.0302d.

From the perspective of the Presbytery of Detroit, it can be an opportunity to engage sessions in the work of the GA. Therefore, we propose the following Coordinating Cabinet Policy:

The Coordinating Cabinet will receive and consider requests from sessions to endorse overtures submitted to the General Assembly. It will receive such recommendations
