Good News for Mission Lovers
How does your congregation serve the wider region?
Even if you don’t offer a food pantry, soup kitchen, VBS, or 12-step group, you probably have been sharing in the valuable work of Albany Presbytery’s six Mission Partners. Together they receive slightly more than a tithe of our general operating budget.
Who are these Partners? What do they do?

Now is the season when our Mission Committee is accepting applications for next year’s Mission Partners. Potential first-time partners have until April 30 to submit the 5-page form [click here]. We show preference to ministries endorsed by one or more Sessions, and which operate within our bounds.
Presbyterians have always believed in partnership. After all, we’re not the only team in God’s game!

The purpose of the Albany Presbytery Blog is to share information, tell stories, and promote the mission and ministry of the presbytery, synod and beyond. While the breadth of this medium is intentionally broad, it is not a platform for opinion pieces related to business coming before the presbytery unless designed as part of an initiative to provide a diversity of viewpoints at the direction of the presbytery. Exceptions to this policy may be brought to the presbytery officers who will determine appropriateness of submissions.
