Congregational Resources

This page is a work in progress. If you have suggestions for resources, please share!

 

The presbytery is responsible for the government of the church throughout its district, and for assisting and supporting the witness of congregations to the sovereign activity of God in the world, so that all congregations become communities of faith, hope, love, and witness.(G-3.0301)

These resources are one way in which the Presbytery supports its member congregations. Through our connectional nature, we also bring the gifts of our own expertise to our work together. This list is limited… but your siblings in faith are not! Please reach out to our Resource Presbyter if you need additional assistance.

General Resources

To sign up for services, use your name and the name of your congregation. If you have any questions, contact kchamis@cayugasyracuse.org

 

As members of the PCUSA, there are several resources available on the denominational homepage.
