General Assembly Amendments
The 222nd General Assembly (2016) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) approved and recommended to the presbyteries, for their affirmative or negative votes, proposed changes in the language of the Book of Order that, if approved, will amend the Constitution. New Castle Presbytery will vote on these amendments at our December Presbytery meeting if the way be clear.
Presbytery Council received the amendments at their meeting on September 7, 2016, and will be offering a recommendation on each amendment for your consideration. The Stated Clerk’s intent it to include as many of the amendments as possible in the Omnibus Motion for the December meeting.
