Stated Assembly Meeting - May 28, 2019 - Arvada Presbyterian Church

Stated Assembly Meeting - May 28, 2019 - Arvada Presbyterian Church

2019 May Assembly Image Arvada with logo.jpg

Thank you to North Highland PC

for co-hosting!

Note: Location Change Due to Accessibility

The Assembly Work Group is trying a new thing in 2019.  We are attempting a new model for our assemblies that combine "worshipful work" and "eat and meet". We wish to hold the meetings in space that will accommodate tables and chairs for all present so that we can eat dinner and conduct worship and business in one room. The intent is to model the Assembly after Jesus' meals with the disciples. They ate, they talked, Jesus taught, and together they worshiped God. 

We have also become aware that we have unintentionally excluded those who have mobility issues. Access is restricted when the Assemblies have been held in spaces in which climbing stairs is required to eat the meal or attend the meeting. With all of this in mind, we have had to reconsider the previously chosen sites, with particular concern for those with mobility issues. We are grateful to the North Highland Church for their willingness to host the May Assembly meeting, but accessibility issues dictate that the location must be changed. This was a painful decision, and we offer our sincere apology to North Highland. The May meeting will be held at Arvada Presbyterian, to whom we give thanks for their willingness to host the Assembly on short notice.  

The Assembly Work Group is responsible for the selection of host churches where the meetings may be conducted efficiently, comfortably, hospitably, and where all who attend the meeting feel welcome.  In all that we do in Jesus' name, we covet your prayers.

Rev. Dana Hughes
Transitional Presbytery Pastor on behalf of the Assemblies Work Group

We will begin at 5:30 pm. The meeting will begin with a Call to Order and Prayer. Following the prayer we will share a meal together . After a time of fellowship we will be lead by Arvada PC in music, continuing us in worship and our Assembly Meeting.

By building relationships between institutions, by identifying and researching issues of importance to the community, and by organizing for action, churches are leading change in the communities they serve.

Come hear how our congregations in Arvada are experimenting with community organizing as mission. Led by Jorge Montiel of IAF (Industrial Areas Foundation), Rev. gretchen Sausville and Rev. John Anderson.

Healing the Wounds of Privilege (webinar)

90-minute Outlook webinar
Tuesday, January 15 at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT
Presented by Amy Julia Becker

This webinar will offer congregations and pastors alike a way to address the challenging topic of privilege and social divisions with generosity, humility and hope. This webinar will be particularly useful in the context of predominantly white congregations with members who want to explore the concept of privilege and consider whether a loving response is possible.

Participants will:

  • Recognize what privilege is and how it functions in our culture.

  • Be able to identify the ways social divisions harm vulnerable people through the injustices of exclusion as well as the ways social divisions harm the very people they supposedly benefit .

  • Understand Jesus’ approach to social divisions and apply a model of healing to our broken world.

Live webinar with on-demand video replay — $29.95
(1-6 participants from the same church/ministry)

Omaha Presbyterian Seminary Foundation is offering 50% scholarships for the first 20 registrants. Email a copy of your paid registration to opsf@opsf-omaha.org and OPSF will reimburse you $15 of your webinar fee.

WilderSoul - Church of Lost Walls Gathering

Wild Edges: Crossing the Threshold Into A Sacred World

Church of Lost Walls logo.jpeg

Sunday, December 9th | 1:30 - 4:30 pm in Roxborough State Park, Denver CO. This half-day offering in the biodiverse ecotone of Roxborough State Park, with its striking and storied rock formations rising sharply between the Ancestral Rocky Mountains and high plains of the Colorado plateau is an introduction to spiritual rewilding practices and deep belonging in community. Through nature-based practices that draw upon the wisdom of sacred narratives and older traditions, we will explore our original capacity to enter into conversation with the world, what the Celts called the sacred Book of Nature. Jesus spoke often of this wild terrain of the kingdom as “treasure hidden in the field.” Take a step across the threshold toward a culturally creative vision for life. Renew your sense of hope and courage to face our current spiritual and ecological crises together, rooted in sacred community with one another, the wild earth, and the great mystery we call God. We invite a suggested donation of $15.

WilderSoul is one of Denver Presbytery's New Worshiping Communities led by Rev. Matt Syrdal. WilderSoul is a nature-based guiding, consulting and coaching practice designed to help individuals cultivate deep wholeness and Self-healing to live lives of greater purpose in deeper service to the world.
