This past summer, commissioners to the 222nd General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) approved proposing 16 amendments to the Book of Order.  They address everything from changing the just-recently-changed references to "teaching elder" back to "Minister of Word and Sacrament," to a completely revised "Directory for Worship" section of the Book of Order.

Our Stated Clerk/Communicator has prepared a two-page summary of these proposed amendments.  You may find it by clicking this link: Summary of proposed GA amendments - 2016.docx.

The booklet containing all of the proposed amendments, along with supporting materials and links to the full action of the General Assembly, may be downloaded at
