The meeting was held at the First Presbyterian Church in Ramsey, home of the Presbytery Moderator, Elder Paul Talarico. The Pastor, Rev. Steve Huston, staff and volunteers ensured all preparations for a smooth running meeting were in place. Pastor and staff extended a warm welcome and provided a great Middle Eastern meal enjoyed by everyone!
The worship sermon was delivered by R.E. Paul Talarico, Moderator, entitled “O, Jerusalem..O, Detroit!” The sermon was about staying connected in the midst of disagreement.
The service of worship was followed by a report from Rev. Jon Brown, one of the commissioners to GA, and Kayla Badree, YAAD representative. The assembly then broke into small discussion groups, to express their thoughts regarding “Marriage Equality” issues.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Grace to you and Peace in the name of our Lord Christ Jesus.
When one of our presbytery’s churches rejoices, we all rejoice; and, when one suffers, we all join in that suffering. More importantly because we are a connectional church, we are called to respond. Last winter’s one-two punch set a lot of you reeling under the burden of increased snow removal expenses.
In response, the Council and Trustees sent a proposal to the last Stated Meeting to provide a grant of up to $1000.00 to each church so affected. The measure was approved late in the meeting, so anyone not present and not having read the Council report in the pre-pack is probably not aware of this offer.
