Thursday, October 8, 2020 – Rev. Steve Cureton, Executive Presbyter for Northumberland Presbytery. Have you been called to serve as a Ruling Elder or Deacon for your congregation within the last year or so and you’re still not quite sure what your role is? Or have you been serving for years and could use a reminder why you said yes when the nominating committee called?
Elected officers are too important in the life of a church. This training will help equip elders and deacons to do the work God has called them to do. Steve will provide instruction in the Constitution, foundations, and structure of the Presbyterian Church (USA) as well as an examination of the meaning and purpose of the Constitutional Questions asked during ordination/installation. He will also touch upon the Book of Order, history, Reformed theology, and the connectional nature of our denomination.
