2016 Session Minutes Review 

The Council’s Sessional Records Review Sub-Committee has the responsibility of reviewing Sessional records of the churches in the Presbytery of Charlotte on an annual basis. If you have not already submitted your church’s 2016 minutes, the committee requests that your Session minutes be submitted to the Presbytery Office by July 1, 2017. The minutes will be reviewed and ready for pick-up at the October 24th Presbytery meeting at Steele Creek Presbyterian Church. If you would like to have your records returned by mail, please include a stamped, self-addressed envelope.
Some important guidelines to note:

         •Submit a copy of your 2016 minutes (signed) – NOT the originals
         •No records will be received or reviewed after September 1, 2017.
