Presbytery Embraces New Vision

Trusting in the Spirit’s guidance, the Presbytery of Giddings-Lovejoy embarked on a new path for ministry and mission.

The Foundations of Presbyterian Polity clarify that a presbytery is responsible for assisting and supporting the witness of congregations to the sovereign activity of God in the world,
so that all congregations become communities of faith, hope, love and witness. (F-1.0401) With that in mind, our presbytery’s focus is to become a community of vibrant congregations and dynamic leaders.

Nurture, encourage, and connect worshiping communities in spiritual, relational and
missional vitality.
