Dear Fathers and Brothers:
The One Hundred and Fourth Stated Meeting of the Presbytery of Southwest Florida will take place on Saturday, September 10, 2016 at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Lakeland, FL (210 Poppell Drive, Lakeland FL 33813; 863-646-963100).
Registration begins at 8:00 a.m., and the meeting begins at 8:30 a.m. with a Worship Service. Two candidates for licensure, Mr. Jimbo Mullin and Mr. Adam McNeal, will preach at the Presbytery Worship Service. They will both preach at the time during the Worship Service. We will begin worship together, and at the time for the preaching, we will divide into two groups. Following the Worship Service, we shall join together for a Season of Prayer.
This time, there is a busy Docket for this Stated Meeting of the Presbytery. Therefore, lunch will be provided at noon, and I expect to adjourn the Presbytery meeting around 3:00 p.m.
The docket for the meeting, along with various attachments, will be available at our Presbytery website at: http://swfpresbytery.org/news/. Please check the website before coming to the Presbytery Meeting in order to download all the reports and documents, as they will not be provided at the meeting.
Be aware that the Presbytery agreed at the September 2015 meeting that appropriate attire for the Presbytery meetings is at least business casual.
Finally, please pray that the Lord will bless the work of the Presbytery as we meet on September 10.
Grace and peace,
Stated Clerk, Presbytery of Southwest Florida
