February 21, 2017 – GA Amendments & History of Presbyterian Church in SC

I’m writing a reminder letter about two parts of our Winter Stated Meeting on Tuesday, February 21st at First Spartanburg.  The Docket Pack will be coming out in a couple of weeks, but I especially want to highlight these items:
  • We will vote on the General Assembly Amendments passed last Summer.  GA no longer prepares paper Amendment booklets, but rather gives us the website.  As this is a 40 plus page document, we are not going to print them either, except by special request.  Below you will see the link and see the analysis that was done by the Association of Stated Clerks.  Please make sure your Commissioners have read these prior to the meeting.
  • We will begin our life in the new model of Presbytery at the Winter Meeting.  Rev. Tom Hay, the General Assembly Associated Clerk for General Assembly Operations will be with us.  Rev. Dr. Charles E. Raynal, III and Rev. Dr. Frank Colcough will be with us to talk about our Reformed and Presbyterian Heritage in South Carolina, and Rev. Dr. Richard Ray from the Montreat Heritage Society will be with us to talk about the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.  Below you will find the link to the recently published fourth volume of The History of the Presbyterian Church in South Carolina by Charles Raynal and Nancy Griffith. If you would like to get a copy for 50% for yourself or for your Church Library, please let Leanne White know by February 26th. 
Grace and Peace,
Rev. Gordon W. G. Raynal
Stated Clerk
