Current Presbytery Meeting Packet

Meeting Date: Saturday, September 9, 2017
Registration: Opens at 9:30 a.m.
Location: First Presbyterian Church, Newark

We live in a time in which events in places like Ferguson, Charleston, Charlottesville and Berkeley are calling us again to recognize and attend to the power that racism still holds over our communities. Many Presbyterians are asking: What can be done? What should be done?The Mission & Vision Leadership team of the Presbytery of San Francisco together with the Presbytery Meetings Working Group would like to invite you and your worshiping community to take that first step toward dismantling racism. On Saturday, September 9, at our regular presbytery meeting, at First Presbytery Church of Newark, we will spend several hours together under the guidance of Crossroads Anti-Racism Organizing and Training. Organizer Jessica Vasquez-Torres will lead us in a series of exercises to help us begin to examine our own hearts as we consider how to integrate anti-racism work in our congregations and in our communities. You are welcome to bring a larger contingent from your congregation.

NOTE THIS REVISED SCHEDULE: On the 9th, we begin with registration between 9:30 and 10 am, and then share in a plenary business meeting for our morning session. We will break by noon for lunch. You may bring a brown bag or purchase lunch on site for $10. We reconvene at 12:45 pm for announcements and an intro to our trainer and the afternoon session of antiracism training. Closing worship begins at 3 pm, and it is followed by a farewell reception for Kathy Runyeon, who has served as our Stated Clerk since 2002.
