Tuesday July 15, 2014 Special Called Presbytery Assembly Notice

To the Church Commissioners, Council Elders and Committee Chairs, Commissioned Lay Pastors, and Minister Members of Presbytery:

Moderator Judi Gage, at the request of Ruling Elders Dale Barber(Valley United), Chris Burger(Binghamton United ) and Teaching Elders Mark Piedmonte(Gilbertsville/Garrattsville) and Emrys Tyler (Nineveh), has issued a call for a Special Meeting of the Presbytery of Susquehanna Valley for 7pm, Tuesday July 15, 2014 at First Presbyterian Church, Bainbridge. The purpose of the meeting is to act on a call from the Valley United Presbyterian Church (Waverly NY, Athens PA and Sayre PA) to a candidate for ministry who will also be examined for ordination, and if approved, ordained and received as a member of Susquehanna Valley Presbytery. As the candidate is currently a Ruling Elder, Presbytery may be asked to approve her to administer the Lord's Supper (under G-3.0301b) prior to the date of ordination as a Teaching Elder.

Moderator Judi Gage is on medical leave at this time and Vice-Moderator Emrys Tyler will be on study leave. So the moderator has asked Cabinet Chair Lisa Heckman to moderate this special assembly.

While no other business may be transacted at this meeting, we anticipate sharing information, questions and resources from the recent meeting of the General Assembly in Detroit. Terms of call and other information will be posted on the website by midnight July 5, 2014.

A page with much information on the General Assembly has been created on our website at http://susvalpresby.org/event/general-assembly/
