Summer Sermon Series: Old Testament Prophets

Each sermon from mid-June through the end of July will focus on the messages brought by Old Testament prophets.  These brave men were the voices of God to His people in the ancient years of Israel.  In times of trouble, the people of God were still given repeated chances to return to His loving arms; that lesson still exists for all people everywhere.  

June 19: Elijah (1st Kings 19) & Elisha (2nd Kings 5)

June 26: Malachi 3: 5-7

July 3: Jonah 3:1-10 and Nahum 1:2-13

July 10: Obadiah vv. 10-15

July 17: Amos chapters 7-8

Every other year, members of our denomination gather together to work on various statements and issues facing Presbyterians today.  The decisions that are made at GA affect every local Presbytery, church, and Presbyterian in our country.  HOWEVER, no major decisions can be made without the vote of the local presbyteries.  

The General Assembly consists of commissioners elected by presbyteries. Half of the commissioners will be ruling elders, half will be teaching elders. Few will ever have been commissioners to the General Assembly before, but most will have served in one of the other governing bodies of our church: the session, which provides care and oversight of a local congregation; the presbytery, which provides care and oversight of a group of congregations; or the synod which provides care and oversight of several presbyteries.

It reviews the work of synods, resolves controversies in the church, is responsible for matters of common concern for the whole church, and serves as a symbol of unity for the church.

Stay tuned for more information coming out of GA and what votes may be coming up for us.
