Plain buttonsMany people from around the Synod of the Trinity are converging on Portland, Ore., for the 222nd General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) from June 18-25. Specifically, Synod representatives Susan Faye Wonderland, Transitional Executive; Wayne Yost, Stated Clerk; Chantal Atnip, Treasurer; and Barbara Chaapel, former Synod Moderator; will be on hand for the events. (Seek out one of them and get a button to wear during the week that celebrates our 300th birthday!)
