It is our desire to have all churches within the presbytery represented by one or more persons serving on committees. However, we need your help. We would encourage every teaching elder member of presbytery, ruling elder commissioners to presbytery, and any other lay members of congregations who would be interested in serving the larger church to please fill one out and send it to us. We will keep these on file for at least a few years and refer to them regularly as openings occur. The Annual meeting of presbytery is in May, so new names are especially wanted in February to April, just when you may be looking for new challenges after serving a term as deacon or ruling elder locally.
