General Assembly Commissioners


Your General Assembly Commissioners at Work in Detroit June 14 to 21 was a very busy time for five members of Lake Erie Presbytery.  Sue Nageotte, Lynda Karger, Brittany Kaltenbaugh, Barry Cressman and Carl Hohmann worked long hours discerning God's will with hundreds of other commissioners. Their work stretched from early in the morning until late at night.  As you have questions concerning General Assembly you are encouraged to speak with one of them or with General Presbyter David Oyler.








 Good News from Garland!!

The Garland Presbyterian Church is located in one of the smaller villages in Lake Erie Presbytery.  Yet they are most eager to gather children together to share Good News.  Their summer Vacation Bible School was held in June with the theme of 'Blast Off'!  Their work has a significant impact for the Kingdom of God!  Great job, Garland Church!







Andrew and Ingrid Walls Visit

Lake Erie Presbytery, Blessed through the Ministry of Andrew and Ingrid Walls May 21 to 26 found Andrew and Ingrid Walls providing keen insight about their mission work in Africa as they ministered to the churches of Lake Erie Presbytery.  Ingrid, a Presbyterian missionary, and Andrew, a well-known missiologist in Africa, Europe and North America, spoke in 9 locations to about 400 people from 15 different congregations in their time with us.

They understand in great detail the emerging church in Africa and insights from Africa that can inform the North American church.  It was a treat to hear their teaching on what it means to be a vibrant church in the 21st century!






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!
