I want to give a huge shout out and affirmation to the Synod’s Come To the Table Event held at Stony Point Center a few weeks ago! Over 150 Presbyterians gathered for a time of worship, reflection, and learning.

As a new sojourner in this land of Presbyterians, it was great to see how the Synod of the Northeast is coming alongside presbyteries and congregations in new and exciting ways! From Innovation grants to learnings on how congregations can better engage their neighbors, it was so good to see the Spirit alive and at work in this region.

I hope that more of us from Albany Presbytery can make it to the next one!

Joy and Peace,
Scott DeBlock
