The Presbytery is pleased to partner with the Presbyterian Foundation to offer a ninety minute workshop experience geared toward helping small churches in ministry. This workshop is FREE and all small churches in the Presbytery are strongly encouraged to attend. There will even be a light lunch provided for you!!! This workshop is to help churches who are wrestling with financial challenges. Have you even asked ... Where is my church on the road to financial health? Do we have all the resources we need? Is there room for improvement in the areas of stewardship and generosity? This event will give us a clearer look at today's church, while providing an opportunity to network with other individuals doing the same work as you. We will also have time to discuss common practices that have worked successfully in small church ministry.
Registration is necessary, please! Please contact the Presbytery office by phone or email (Bobbi) to register for one of these workshops. You can find more information regarding these workshops under the "Educational Events" tab on the left side of this page.
Attention all churches with high school youth! Please mark your calendars now for Presbyterian Triennium 2016, which will be July 19-23 (with likely travel on the 18th and 24th). Blair Buckley, Director of Youth and Children's Ministries at St. Andrew Presbyterian Church in Boulder, Colorado, is serving as the registrar for the Presbytery. She sent all of your churches a mailing with all the important information and forms in early December, so please let her know as soon as possible if you didn't get these. The cost of triennium this year will probably be over $1,000 per participant, which includes registration and travel. We'd like to have payments start coming into the Presbytery by February so if you need to do some fundraising, the time to do them is now! Participant information forms and applications are due January 10, 2016. If you have any questions or concerns, or if you'd be interested in serving on work crew or as a volunteer adult adviser, please contact Blair Buckley.
