Christian Appalachian Project: Kentucky Mission 2022

Thank you to the Christian Appalachian Project and our team of adult and youth volunteers who completed another successful mission trip to Eastern Kentucky.  This year, we worked on rebuilding a roof and putting in new flooring to make homes safer and dryer for the residents. It was a wonderful week of hard work and heavy lifting. Every day was filled with joy, gratitude, team-bonding, and faith affirmation.

Thank you to our team members: Dave Berry, The Rev. Heather Brannon, Lucy Edwards, Andrew Gart, Olivia Gart, Emily Olson, Laura Olson, Alex Perez, Kathy Stine, Barbara Westlake, and our fearless leader, Debbie Wright.

General Assembly

GA starts this week, with the theme “From Lament to Hope” at the PC(U.S.A.)’s home base in Louisville. This biennial meeting brings together commissioners and advisory delegates from all 172 presbyteries, as well as other delegates and observers from around the world. 

The assembly seeks to protect the Church from errors in faith and practice by assuring that the expression of our theology remains true to biblical standards. In other words, overtures are presented from the bottom up (church/Presbytery to Synod then GA), discussed, and voted on regarding issues, such as the denomination’s stances on social justice.

Social Issues Task Force Update

Thanks to everyone who participated in this fruitful, church-wide discussion. We had over 70 participants–what a blessing!
