Presbytery Meetings

Our Presbytery gathers together in Stated Meetings four-five times a year for education, fellowship, worship, parliamentary actions and discovering God’s preferred future together.  While only commissioners may vote, all members and friends of Albany Presbytery are always welcome at our Presbytery meetings, especially in this time of transition.  We welcome all to share in this important time of discerning where God’s Spirit is leading us.

Documents related to Stated Meetings of the Presbytery are posted according to the Standing Rules 10 days prior to the meeting.
