Presbytery Recap:

Spring Presbytery Wrap Up Part I—let’s get down to business:

  • Commission on Preparation for Ministry Candidate Michelle Olson, aced her (oral) ordination examination and will be ordained at 2 pm on April 7th at Lake Grove Presbyterian Church in Lake Oswego. Congratulations Michelle!
  • $10,000 was set aside for participants of the 2019 Youth Triennium in Indiana. Go Youth!
