An overture at the 223rd General Assembly asking for the town of Waverly, NY, to be included in the Synod of the Trinity will allow for the congregation to be part of Lackawanna, a process that is four years in the making.
We have been listening for the kind of role the Synod might need to take to provide more targeted networking, training, granting or facilitating to assist presbyteries and presbyteries working together to get where they say they want to be.
Including the matching money from the Presbytery of Lake Erie, a grand total of $31,301.78 was raised, by the grace of God, for “Wheels for Josh” across the Ghana Mission Network!
“It provided a great opportunity to bring our churches together for more than just another meeting.”
“It’s a place to gather, share stories, form communities, form friendships and nourish your spirit.”
“We pray that we each may be a force for good, that we will keep our sights set on the Spirit of Life that shines on everyone and that we will allow that Spirit to guide our steps in ways that truly serve.”
“This congregation is extremely optimistic and excited about where the future is taking us.”
“We’re a small congregation that has some mighty warriors.”
“I see a lot of love coming out of this, especially with the kids. But it’s also teachers. Everybody is helping each other.”
My call is to trust in that future – do all that I can, and trust, because it is held by the one who burst into new life and invites me to follow.
