Preparations are being made for the annual Celebration of Saints when the names of all elders who have gone to eternal glory during the past year will be reported and honored during the presbytery’s December 7, 2021 Stated Meeting.
The presbytery needs help compiling a list of any elders in your congregation who joined the Church Triumphant between October 1, 2020 and September 30, 2021. The information must be submitted by Thursday, November 11, 2021 to be included in the liturgy during the December 7, 2021 Stated Meeting.
Please gather a list of any elders – teaching or ruling – who should be included in the Celebration of Saints list and the dates of their deaths. Then, click here to enter the information via an online form. If no elders died in the past year, simply record “NONE” in the field where you are asked to name individuals so it can be reported that your church did respond.
The information also may be reported using a fillable .pdf form available here. After entering the requested information, save a copy to the computer desktop. Then send the file as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org
