Sending Service for First Presbyterian Endicott - August 23rd 4pm
The Final Worship Service for FPC Endicott as a PCUSA congregation will be held at the church on Sunday Afternoon August 23 at 4 pm. This is a joint worship service planned by the Presbytery Cabinet and First Endicott as they move to ECO - A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians. The resolution approved by Presbytery called this the Final Worship Service of Commissioning, which is a close synonym to Sending. Since Susquehanna Valley can't really commission a church of another denomination, we are using the term Sending, since that also has the idea of "Go in God's Grace to love and serve the Lord where you are called." This service is open to all who wish to say farewell and Godspeed and mark both an ending and a beginning.
Some members of First Endicott will remain PCUSA for a while, including some who are serving Presbytery committees, and will be kept on a special roll of members held by the Presbytery for several years. An initial information session on this process has been held at the church. If you have questions or know someone who needs to know about this special membership roll, contact the Stated Clerk.
