Special Committee to Monitor Denominational Issues
Proposed Dismissal Policy to be previewed at a special Pre-Presbytery meeting at Westfield Church 5:00-6:15 PM on Tuesday, Sept. 27. (View the Policy here.) The creation of such a policy comes in response to presbytery’s action at the June meeting. Elders, pastors, and other leaders who are especially interested in this policy by which a congregation would explore being dismissed from the PCUSA to another Reformed body are strongly encouraged to attend this special pre-presbytery event. While the policy will be presented for a first-reading at the presbytery meeting later in the evening, the presentation there will be very brief and without discussion; thus the best opportunity to hear the rationale behind the proposed policy and to offer input will be at Westfield, beginning at 5:00 PM.
