April 20, 2013 Assembly

Naperville experienced extensive flooding, but Knox Presbyterian stayed dry and was able to host the Presbytery Assembly meeting.

Julia Peña, the Presbytery’s Moderator, ran his first official meeting, and the national PCUSA moderator, Rev. Neal Presa, visited – giving a pre-presbytery talk and preaching during the meeting.

Mission Witness was the order of the day – a time to meet representatives from ministries and partners of the presbytery. These are where your mission dollars and per capita go at the presbytery level!

Under direction from the Vision and Praxis Task Force, commissioners practiced “relational meetings,” guided one-on-one conversations, designed to cultivate the sort of deep and spirited relationships that Jesus developed with others.

The Presbytery examined three people: Ms. Jana Blazek was
approved for ordination, and Ms. Jeannine Oakes and Ms. Zaida Rodriguez were approved as candidates for ministry.
