108th Stated Meeting of the Presbytery of Southwest Florida

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

 

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
