Presbytery of Boise Stated Meeting
The Presbytery of Boise will meet on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 10 am. Bethany Presbyterian Church is our host, and I am including a letter of invitation with driving directions and other meeting information from Rev. Linda Toth. Masks are optional. The meeting will also be conducted on Zoom for those of you unable to travel. For congregations, please make sure this email gets to your ruling elder commissioners. If you have not already registered, please do so here.
Our meeting handbook is below. Please note it is very long, so print only if needed. You'll see from the agenda that this will be another robust meeting with election of officers, budget approval, proposals regarding the Emmett property, the transfer request and examination of Rev. Seth Wheeler, and consideration of many General Assembly amendments to the Book of Order. For those of you especially interested in the GA overtures (see both the consent agenda and the report of the Bills & Overtures Task Force), there will be a special pre-meeting with our GA Commissioners at 9:00 am. You are welcome to come early for this discussion. Otherwise, registration starts at 9:30 am, and the meeting at 10 am. We will take a lunch break mid-way. This is a brown-bag meal, so bring your personal favorites.
By separate email, I will be sending the Financial Management Committee's recommended budget and explanation. There are some final touches on those documents that are still coming.
We will worship throughout our business meeting -- or, conversely, do business throughout our worship -- because we intend the work we do to glorify God. I look forward to our worshipful work together!
Rachel Yates, Transitional Presbyter/Stated Clerk
