Dear Church Family, - Small Church Team

On behalf of the Small Church Team, we would like to invite you to an exciting event on March 10, 2018 at the Conklin Presbyterian Church located at 1175 Conklin Road in Conklin.  This event will start at 8 am and go to 12.  Refreshments will be provided.

There are several things that make this a very exciting "not to miss" event!  Our first event, which was held this past December, received rave reviews from all the small churches that attended.  Initially the Small Church Team, a subcommittee of COM, was formed to be a support and resource for small congregations.  We feel that this program can benefit all  of our churches.

George Budine has developed a program that addresses many concerns that  churches across our Presbytery are faced with.  George has been a Lay Pastor for the small congregation of the Presbyterian Church in Nichols which has under gone revitalization under his guidance.

The program that George will present has a great success record.  There is NO COST to anyone for this.  Just come and hear the good news of hope and vision for your churches. We are confident that everyone will come away with some valuable information that they can take back to their churches that will make a positive difference.  We feel this can only lead to new energy and stronger faith.

Please let us know no later than March 2, 2018 how many from your church will be attending.  This will give the people at Conklin time to shop and prepare the refreshments.

We look forward to seeing you. Please RSVP to any one of us:
