Presbytery of Lake Erie -- Mission Statement
“Empowered and guided by the Holy Spirit through
scripture, our confessions, and conscience
the Presbytery of Lake Erie journeys with
congregations, ruling elders and teaching elders as we
live, grow, fellowship and witness to
the work of God through Jesus Christ
in today’s changing world.
Recognizing that we are called to serve all of God’s children,
we do this through shared
prayer, worship, training, evangelism, and mission
to strengthen the dynamic Body of Christ.”
Lake Erie Presbytery ~ 2013 Youth Triennium
Youth Triennium, Celebrated at Purdue University, where a total of 13 youth and 4 adults from Lake Erie Presbytery traveled to Purdue University in July in order to participate in the Youth Triennium. They were joined by several thousand other Presbyterian youth from across the country and around the world. They had an incredible (and hot!) week of participating in worship, small groups, fun activities and a host of other opportunities. Thank you to Lake Erie Presbytery for your prayer and financial support!
Presbytery-Wide Mission Trip
The Presbytery of Lake Erie hosted its first mission trip (at least first in a long time!!) this summer. Six youth and eleven adults spent a week in Elizabeth, New Jersey addressing housing rehabilitation through Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. It was a rich time of relationship building and serving in the larger Kingdom of God. Thank you for your prayers and encouragement!
THE PRESBYTERY OF LAKE ERIE
Welcome to the website of the Presbytery of Lake Erie! These are exciting times in the life of the church. Come and join with one of the 58 congregations in this presbytery as they testify to the reconciling power of God in their lives! The Presbyterian Church seeks to be a community reconciled to God through Christ.
To be reconciled to God is to be sent into the world as his reconciling community. This community, the church universal, is entrusted with God’s message of reconciliation … Wherever the church exists, its members are both gathered in corporate life and dispersed in society for the sake of mission in the world.
-The Confession of 1967
Come and discover what God is up to in our midst – worshipping faithfully, serving and compassionately and living powerfully for God!
