Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)

Connectional Relationships

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is the national denomination of the Presbytery of San Francisco and is composed of 16 synods (we are in the Synod of the Pacific). Each synod is composed of Presbyteries (we are in the Presbytery of San Francisco), and each Presbytery is composed of churches, worshiping communities, and members (this could be you).

Important Resources:

General Assembly:

As a denomination, we gather every four years for General Assembly. General Assembly has several specific responsibilities outlined in Chapter 3 of the Book of Order. The assembly seeks to protect our church from errors in faith and practice, is responsible for assuring that the expression of our theology remains true to the biblical standards in our historic confessions. The General Assembly presents a witness for truth and justice in our community and in the world community. It sets priorities for the church and establishes relationships with other churches or ecumenical bodies. General Assembly consists of commissioners elected by presbyteries. Half of the commissioners will be ruling elders, half will be teaching elders.

The 226th General Assembly (2024)  will take place on June 29 – July 6, 2024, in Salt Lake City, UT.

Bills and Overtures:

As a Presbytery, one way we participate in General Asssymeble is through the work of the Bills and Overtures Committee. The Bills and Overtures Committee reviews and recommends overtures to GA from sessions and reviews and reports on proposed amendments to the PCUSA Constitution. The Committee shall consist of the commissioners and Advisory Delegates to the most recent General Assembly with the Stated Clerk as staff.
