Actions from Stated Meeting November 18, 2014

The following actions are provided to the Presbytery members by the Stated Clerk.

Presbytery VOTED:

To APPROVE Presbytery’s portion of the 2015 Per Capita Apportionment in the amount of $25.28 per active, communicant member.  This represents no change from 2014.

 [NOTE: we have received word that the General Assembly and Synod of the Northeast Per Capita amounts for 2015 are as follows:  Synod of the Northeast - $4.00 (a $.05 increase from 2014); General Assembly - $7.07 (a $0.05 increase from 2014).]

Therefore, the total 2015 Per Capita Apportionment for the Presbytery of the Palisades shall be $36.35 per active communicant member, as compared to a 2014 total of $36.25


To MAKE AVAILABLE $300,000 for grants, from the proceeds of the sale of the property of the former First Presbyterian Church of Wood-Ridge, in accordance with the newly-adopted Policy on the Use of Assets of Dissolved Congregations (“New Wineskins”).

A copy of the Policy, with an accompanying application form, is posted here.

Completed application forms should be returned to the Presbytery Office.



          1.  A 2% increase in SALARY + HOUSING for all full-time Calls/Invitations for 2015, for a new, minimum SALARY + HOUSING of $62,644.   Less than full-time Calls/Invitations may be pro-rated accordingly.

          2. An INCREASE in the minimum for Professional Expenses (including travel) for 2015, to $2,500; and an INCREASE in the minimum for Continuing Education Expenses for 2015, to $1000.

          3.  In addition, the Committee on Ministry recommends that the SALARY + HOUSING for Ministers currently receiving more than the new Presbytery minimum be increased by 2% for 2015, wherever possible.

And a REMINDER:  Please submit your 2015 Terms of Call/Invitation to the Committee on Ministry as soon as possible in the New Year!
