Current Presbytery Meeting Packet

Meeting Date: Tuesday, September 11, 2018
Registration: Opens at 2:30 p.m.
Location:  St. John’s Presbyterian Church in San Francisco

 

The Presbytery of San Francisco next meets on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 at
St. John’s Presbyterian Church, 25 Lake St. in San Francisco.  (Yes, that is “9-11”)

We are hosting at this meeting the Rev.  Cindy Kohlmann Co-Moderator of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)  Elected at this year’s GA and serving through 2020, we are welcoming her to a series of events from Saturday the 8th through Wednesday the 12th.  She will be part of panel discussion with GA Commissioners starting at 3:15 p.m. and helping to lead worship.  [Bring your church’s ‘celebrations” so she has a sense of what’s special out here.*)  And launching a new approach to “being presbytery”, all three area groups will meet during the 4-5 time slot—so come ready to figure out how to move mission forward with $1,000,000 in mission seed money in each area.  In the meeting itself, we’ll have a couple of Inquirers moving to Candidate status (including our Vice-Moderator); we’ll tidy up Standing Rules loose ends; look forward to Youth Triennium; get first glimpse of 2019 budget, and take care of the vast majority of business through our Consent Docket.  [Be sure to review it so there are no surprises.].

*She’s Resource Presbyter for the Presbyteries of Boston and Northern New England.

Business this meeting includes:

  • Final reading and action on proposed revision to Standing Rules clarify wording that full presbytery is the Board of Directors—who designate FOPC to act as Board of Trustees for the Presbytery
  • In the Omnibus Motion you’ll find about a six page summary of actions taken by this year’s General Assembly. 😊
  • Update on search for new Stated Clerk

We will once again offer simultaneous translation of the meeting for those for whom English is not their primary language.

Our offering will go for Presbytery Deacon’s Fund for pastors needing emergency assistance.

November Meeting will be November 13th  at Lakeside, San Francisco

We look forward to seeing you soon!
