Preparing for Lent
A workshop for worship leaders and preachers
led by Rev. Allen Presby (HR)
The Lenten season provides powerful opportunities for preachers and worship leaders to lead their congregations to deeper faith. In this workshop we will examine the origins of our Lenten traditions, share themes and resources for Lenten preaching and programming, and visit 21st century Jerusalem in order to better understand what Jesus experienced during Holy Week back in the 1st century.
Come, join us, and walk with our Lord on his way to the cross … and on to Easter morning.
Saturday, February 15, 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Nineveh Presbyterian Church
2997 NY Route 7, Nineveh, NY 13813
Cost: $20.00. Includes Continental breakfast and mid-morning snacks.
The registration will determine whether the workshop will be held.

Join us for Compassion, Peace & Justice Training Day
Stay for Ecumenical Advocacy Days
April 24-27 | Washington, D.C.
We believe that God created this world, called it good, and told humans to care for it. We are blessed to have this sacred task.
On April 24, 2020, join together with Presbyterians from across the nation in Washington, D.C. to learn how Presbyterians and partners are answering this call and working for the restoration of God’s creation and people. Through plenaries, workshops, and networking opportunities, this CPJ Training Day offers the chance to explore the various ways we are addressing climate change, ecological destruction and environmental racism. Advancing climate justice and just transition to value and protect people who have historically been made vulnerable by economic and environmental injustice will be a special focus.
Many will continue the learning by attending the Ecumenical Advocacy Days: Imagine! God’s Earth and People Restored from Friday evening on April 24 through Lobby Day on Monday the 27th. Almost 1,000 Christian advocates join us every year for a weekend of workshops, lectures and concrete actions addressing movements for social change.
