The Los Ranchos Presbytery meets 6 times a year. St. Andrew’s had the privilege of hosting the Los Ranchos Presbytery yesterday. About 400 Pastors and Elders from throughout our Presbytery were in attendance. The Los Ranchos Presbytery includes all the Presbyterian Churches from Long Beach to the North, Yorba Linda to the East and San Clemente to the south. The last time we hosted Presbytery was about 12 years ago. Yesterday’s meeting is a very important one as our Presbytery will vote on Amendment 08-B regarding the Ordination of Officers. For more detailed information you may visit the Los Ranchos Presbytery website.
The meeting began in the Sanctuary for a time of worship and meeting. A break-out session and discussion time was held in our wonderful new Youth Center. Dinner was held in the new Dierenfield Hall, and the meeting concluded in the Sanctuary. It was exciting to share our new facilities with our sister churches in the Los Ranchos Presbytery.
Our team of college students who traveled to Kenya this Summer also shared some reflections of their trip, and played a short video of their experiences. The video will be played in all three services this weekend.
