Proposed Amendments to the Book of Order
Categories: None | Tags: None
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 http://www.pcusa.org/resource/ga222-proposed-amendments-constitution/.
