109th Stated Meeting of the Presbytery of Southwest Florida

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

Dear Fathers and Brothers:

 

The One Hundred and Ninth Stated Meeting of the Presbytery of Southwest Florida will take place on Saturday, February 10, 2018 at Holy Trinity Presbyterian Church in Tampa, FL (350 S. Hyde Park Avenue, Tampa, FL 33606; 813-259-3500).

Registration begins at 8:00 a.m., and the meeting at 8:30 a.m. with a Worship Service. The outgoing Moderator has asked TE Pete LaPointe to preach the sermon for the Worship Service. The Worship Service will include the Lord’s Supper (per article 8-1 of our Standing Rules) and Memorials (per article 8-2 of our Standing Rules).

Following the Worship Service, we shall have a Season of Prayer for several churches in our Presbytery.

Lunch will be at noon, which will be provided by Holy Trinity PCA. The purpose of eating lunch together on site at the church is to promote fellowship among fellow presbyters.

The docket for the meeting, along with various attachments, is included with this letter. They will also be available at our Presbytery website at: http://swfpresbytery.org/news/. Additional reports will be added to the website prior to the Presbytery Meeting on February 10. Please check the website before coming to the Presbytery Meeting to download all the reports and documents, as they will not be provided at the meeting.

Finally, please pray that the Lord will bless the work of the Presbytery as we meet on February 10.
Grace and peace,

Freddy Fritz

November 1, 2017

Dear Fathers and Brothers:

The One Hundred and Eighth Stated Meeting of the Presbytery of Southwest Florida will take place on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at Westtown Presbyterian Church in Tampa, FL (13521 Race Track Road, Tampa FL 33626; 813-855-2747).

Registration begins at 8:00 a.m., and the meeting begins at 8:30 a.m. with a Worship Service. TE Dustyn Eudaly, associate pastor of Holy Trinity PCA in Tampa, FL, will preach God’s Word to us during the Worship Service. There will be a Season of Prayer following the Worship Service.

There is not much business on the Docket for this Stated Meeting of the Presbytery. I expect that we shall conclude our business by 1:00 p.m. However, following the Presbytery Meeting, do plan to share lunch with fellow presbyters in nearby restaurants before heading home.

The docket for the meeting, along with various attachments, will be available (on November 1) 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.

Please note that one of the documents in the packet for this coming Presbytery Meeting includes a BCO Amendment from the 45th General Assembly for us to vote upon. The item has to do with increasing the quorum at a congregation meeting that is voting to withdraw from the denomination. Also attached in this packet are two other documents, one in support of the BCO Amendment and the other in opposition to the BCO Amendment. Since we do not have to vote on this BCO Amendment at the November Presbytery Meeting, my suggestion is to present this information to the Presbytery so that some discussion about the matter could produce a more informed vote on the BCO Amendment.

Finally, please pray that the Lord will bless the work of the Presbytery as we meet in November.

 

Grace and peace,

Freddy Fritz

Stated Clerk, Presbytery of Southwest Florida

Dear Fathers and Brothers:

The One Hundred and Seventh Stated Meeting of the Presbytery of Southwest Florida will take place on Tuesday, May 9, 2017 at Redeemer Winter Haven in Winter Haven, FL (1410 Dundee Road, Winter Haven, FL 33884; 863-298-9849).

Registration begins at 8:00 a.m., and the meeting begins at 8:30 a.m. with a Worship Service. Teaching Elder Bob Brubaker, Pastor of Christ Community Presbyterian Church in Clearwater, FL, and last year’s Moderator, will preach to our Presbytery. Following the Worship Service, we shall have a Season of Prayer.

Once again, there is not much business on the Docket for this Stated Meeting of the Presbytery. Therefore, lunch will not be provided, as I expect to adjourn the Presbytery meeting around noon. However, we encourage Presbyters to have lunch at local restaurants before heading home.

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 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 May 9.
