For those of you who were unable to attend last Saturday’s presbytery assembly, you were missed! We worshiped God in a traditional service in the First Presbytery Church of Stroudsburg’s beautiful sanctuary, and I was privileged to preach. If you’re interested in reading my sermon, you can find it in the previous post “Taking A Chance On Change“.
After worship we gathered around tables for an exercise designed to help congregations begin to consider what God might be calling you to be and do going forward. At the end of our conversation I asked about resources that would be helpful to congregations. Someone asked about grants and loans available to help churches in their mission and ministry. Following is a list of links for grants available through the presbytery, synod, and PC(USA).
Synod the Trinity Grants include:
- Innovation Grant
- Innovation Grant for Congregationally Connected Campus Ministry

Please call or email if I can be helpful in any way. I would be happy to brainstorm with you!
Grace and peace,
Rev. Rhonda Kruse
Transitional Presbytery Leader
