Presbytery of Lake Erie -- Mission Statement
“Empowered and guided by the Holy Spirit through

Lake Erie Presbytery Hosts Two Visitors from Ghana
Lydia Adajawah and Seth Agidi spent two weeks in April visiting in the churches of Lake Erie Presbytery as Lake Erie continues to build an international mission partnership with the Christians in the Upper Northern Presbytery of Ghana. They had the opportunity to speak in a number of churches as well as have significant conversations about God’s mighty work between our two presbyteries. God is powerfully at work in both locations. It is good to learn from each other. Thanks be to God!

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!
