"Not Your Average Boundaries Training!"
The Book of Order provides that all councils of the PCUSA should adopt sexual abuse policies and child and youth protection policies (G-3.0106). The Synod of Southern California and Hawaii offers appropriate training opportunities for use by the presbyteries and congregations within its jurisdiction to assist them in meeting this obligation.
The Rev. Dr. Leon E. Fanniel REPL Scholarship program continues as it has for over forty years; the REPL page is HERE.
Additional Matthew 25 resources for congregations, Teaching and Ruling Elders, and Mid-Council staff/volunteers are listed here.
We are now ready to receive applications for a new full-time Presbyterian Chaplain. The LA Medical Center (formerly County/USC Medical Center) is at the crossroads of four Presbyteries who support this ministry financially and as partners in mission:
Presbytery of Los Ranchos
Presbytery of the Pacific,
Presbytery of San Fernando and the
Presbytery of San Gabriel,
in partnership with the Synod of Southern California and Hawaii.
For more information and a position description, follow THIS LINK.
Po'okela Church in Makawao, Maui, a UCC congregation, is pastored by the Rev. Dr. Kimberly Fong, a minister-member of Pacific Presbytery.
This dedicated, secure link shares information, resources, and includes a donation portal:
PDA works collaboratively for every disaster and in this istance, PDA is supporting this church and the upcountry region of Maui, where the upcountry fire is still burning. Initially the focus is on stabilizing the residents by bringing resources to the upcountry community, which is being neglected by the media attention solely on the Lahaina/coastal area.
To become certified as Earth Care Congregations, churches complete activities and projects in the fields of worship, education, facilities and outreach. The Presbyterian Mission Agency has certified four congregations within the Synod as Earth Care Congregations for 2023. They are:
• Christ Church Uniting Disciples and Presbyterians | Kailua, HI (Pacific)
• Culver City Presbyterian Church (Pacific)
• Grace First Presbyterian Church (Los Ranchos)
• St. Mark Presbyterian Church (Los Ranchos)
Details about the program, with project and activity guidance, application information, and stories from participating congregations are on the Presbyterian Mission Agency site
