Work is underway to draft the 2022 budget for the Presbytery of Lake Michigan.

Facilitators, moderators and leaders of the various presbytery teams, commissions, committees and groups recently received information about completing a Ministry Action Plan, or MAP. Work to complete the document helps the facilitator, moderator or leader define what the entity does and how that work fulfills the core values, mission and vision of the presbytery.

In completing the MAP form, the facilitators, moderators and leaders will identify outcomes achieved, challenges faced and opportunities gained in the past year. All that information then should be translated into specific, action-oriented goals for 2022 and estimates of what funds are needed to reach these goals.

Completed MAP forms and budget requests should be submitted by Tuesday, June 14, 2021 to the presbytery’s bookkeeper, Audrey Curry, at

Information gathered via the MAP forms will be reviewed by the Administration & Support, Congregational Support, Dynamic Leaders and Mission & Outreach team facilitators and the Budget & Finance Committee members as they begin drafting the 2022 budget.
