Presbytery Gatherings

Next Gathering: March 16, 2023

The special meeting of the Presbytery of Los Ranchos will be held at Geneva Presbyterian Church at 4:00PM on Thursday, March 16th. We will gather for business, worship and fellowship. Commissioners are encouraged to arrive early at 3:30PM to check-in and enjoy a social time, out on the patio (hoping for no rain)! Worship will be woven into the structure of the business meeting, as we are led to contemplate the season of Lent and these days, “After the Ashes.” The business meeting itself will include all the reports that were tabled at the February 23rd zoom meeting, including an omnibus motion for the General Assembly amendments.

Learning Conversations that were scheduled for February will now be offered at different times on Zoom in March. You can register your attendance for these March Learning Conversations on the Gathering Registration form by March 13th.

We are pleased to be able to provide childcare at the March 16th Meeting for children ages 5-12 years old from 3:45-7:15pm. The deadline to register for this childcare is Monday, March 13. Our childcare providers are volunteers from our host church, Geneva, and have the training, screening and supervision that is consistent with our Child, Youth and Vulnerable Adult Protection Policy. Note: If you have childcare needs that are for children under 5, or older than 12, please contact us directly by email to Lynn Stone at [email protected]. We hope to be able to accommodate you!

We will be ordering boxed meals from Panera and we will take a break from the business to eat together. The business meeting should conclude at about 7:00PM.
