Upcoming Gatherings

Have you heard….?

SUMMIT is the new name chosen for our quarterly presbytery and learning community gatherings.

Our 2nd Summit of 2019 will be Saturday, April 27, 2019 at Millwood Community Presbyterian Church (3223 North Marguerite Rd., Spokane, WA 99212) from 9:30-3:30 (doors open at 9:00). We will spend our day sharing stories about where we have noticed God in our neighborhoods, as well as worshipping together and doing some business together.

Anyone in a congregation is welcome and encouraged to attend to hear what God is up to throughout our region and how we are being called to partner with God.

Past Docket Materials

Request to host “Open Space Discussion” group

Open Space is a large group process in which “space” is provided for people to gather around ministry topics for discussion, collaboration, networking, and information sharing.  The heart of Open Space is a belief that there is a passion amongst the Presbytery for our shared ministries; those ministries that currently exist, and those yet to be discovered.  Have a topic you want to explored during Open Space? You can request space for a future Presbytery gathering on the Presbytery’s website or suggest a topic at the beginning of any Open Space session.  Any Teaching Elder in good standing with the Presbytery, Commissioned Ruling Elder or Ruling Elder Commissioner to Presbytery will be granted their request to host a topic so long as – 1. A moderator for the discussion is identified and 2. There is a recorder (not the moderator) to take notes and submit the notes in electronic form to the Presbytery Office.  You can direct any questions you have about the Open Space gatherings to the Strategic Team Chairperson, Chadron Hazelbaker.

If you would like to ask for time to host a group during the Open Space Discussion time at the Presbytery gathering, please e-mail Katie at [email protected].
