SRPC welcomes two newly elected Elders, Dan Bredbenner and Ryan Heisey, and two newly elected Deacons, Charlie Kim and Erik Woloszczuk, to the Session and Diaconate respectively. All four were duly elected by the congregation on February 14, 2021. An ordination and installation service for the officers-elect is tentatively planned for March 7, 2021.
In addition, Assistant Pastor Matt Bowles was elected by the congregation as Associate Pastor at the same congregational meeting. He will be installed after the March 20 meeting of Potomac Presbytery to take his seat as a voting member of the Session.
Because of the weather, we are cancelling the 9:00 service on Sunday, February 14.
We believe that it will be warmer later in the morning and are planning on having the 10:45 in-person service. We will also be livestreaming for any who do not feel comfortable venturing out in the weather.
We will also still have our planned congregational meeting at approximately 12:30 to vote on candidates for the office of Ruling Elder and of Deacon, as well as vote on calling Pastor Matt Bowles as our Associate Pastor.
Stay warm and dry.
Due to the wintry weather conditions, there will be no in-person worship Sunday, February 7, 2021. Please join us at 10:45 a.m. for online service.
After consultation in view of the approaching winter snow and ice mix, the Elders and Deacons have determined to cancel the in-person worship services for tomorrow.
There will be a live-streamed sermon from Pastor Michael at the usual 10:45 a.m.

This is a great opportunity for middle and high school students to enjoy a summer camp experience with all the fun activities and inspiring worship times of regular camps while also working as a team on a service project for 3-4 hours each day. This is the perfect way for youth to not only experience the adventure of a camp, but also put their faith into action.
