Questions about Stated Meeting packet materials should be directed to

    Request a Thirty-Second Announcement

    Thirty-Second Announcements are returning to Stated Meetings.

    Thirty-Second Announcements are just that: 30 seconds of screen time projected before and after Stated Meetings as congregations and Presbytery of Lake Michigan groups share information about activities, programs and ideas that might interest other presbytery members.

    The announcements may include a screen with text information and/or a short video clip but cannot last longer than 30 seconds. Decisions about the inclusion of Thirty-Second Announcements are at the discretion of staff. (Please note that announcements about fundraising activities are not used.)

    Requests to have a Thirty-Second Announcement must be submitted using an online form available here. Presbytery staff then will work with the identified contact person to get the announcement prepared.

    Protocol Training
