Your Synod’s Board of Trustees and Synod Council have decided to set aside $100,000 of Synod funds for the support of our Presbyteries affected by Hurricane Sandy. These funds are available now for the support of Presbyteries in their work of long term recovery. This fund is emphasizing support for personnel costs incurred by Presbyteries as they coordinate the work of the many volunteers who are offering their help.
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.
