Checklist of Ways Your Presbytery Serves Your Church
At the February 2019 stated presbytery meeting, attendees in small groups filled out this checklist and discussed ways the presbytery has served and assisted churches and how the presbytery could improve its helpful connections to churches. We welcome sessions and others using this checklist to encourage further discussion and feedback.
