Moderator Calls Special Meeting on August 29

Moderator Rosalind Banbury, at the request of Mission Council, has called a special meeting of the Presbytery of the James on August 29 to elect a temporary stated clerk.

Our current stated clerk, Steve Hicks, resigned because the duties of his full-time work have become more demanding. The Rev. Charles Grant is able and willing to become the temporary clerk.

This meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. and should be very short. Your participation ensures we will have the necessary quorum to accomplish the meeting's objective.

The virtual meeting room will open at 6:30 for all participants and guests. An orientation will occur at 6:45. The meeting will be called to order at 7:00.
