A docket, complete with presbytery officers’ and team reports, is now available for the Presbytery’s Spring Stated Meeting, to be held Tuesday, April 28, at 9 a.m. CDT/10 a.m. EDT at Dogwood Acres Retreat Center and Summer Camp, at the Pole Barn. Download it here.

Also, be sure to download:

  • An explanation, rationale and wording for the proposed amendment regarding addition of the Confession of Belhar to the Book of Confessions, on which commissioners will vote at the meeting;
  • A booklet of information about Foothills Presbytery’s suggested overtures for reforming the General Assembly of the PC(USA). This is for your information and input only and will not be presented for voting at the presbytery meeting. A questionnaire at the back of the booklet is provided for your feedback;
  • Ruling elder commissioner certification forms, to be signed by either the session moderator or clerk of session.

Non-retired teaching elders who are unable to attend the meeting or sessions for whom a ruling elder commissioner is not available for the meeting should submit a request to be excused by the stated clerk by emailing statedclerk@presbyteryofflorida.com.

Please be sure that ruling elder commissioners bring the completed certification form to submit at registration at the April meeting. This is crucial for accurate recording of meeting attendance.

A map and directions to Dogwood Acres are included in the docket. Lunch, for which a menu will be provided later, will be available at the meeting for $10 per person. Overnight accommodations at Dogwood Acres (lodging only, no meals) will be available for $30 per person. Please contact Dogwood Acres Director Jonas Georges at (850)867-2800 for lodging reservations.
