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.”
Installation of Rev. Nicola Vitiello
Rev. Nicola Vitiello was installed as the pastor of the Girard Presbyterian Church on December 8. It was a wonderful service of celebration as Rev. Keith Sundberg delivered the sermon and Rev. Andy Holmes provided the charge to the congregation. Rev. Vitiello has been serving for some time as the Temporary Supply pastor of the Girard congregation. Congratulations on this installation!
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!
