WHAT’S HOT IN THE PRESBYTERY
A. FELLOWSHIP & THEOLOGY/Fall in San Diego with the Fellowship Community: There are two really good events I hope we’ll support this fall with our attendance. So plan now: save the dates. The first event is a gathering of Pastors and CREs for conversation, support, and prayer. When: October 1-3, 2018. Where: First Pres San Diego. Cost: $75.00. The second event follows. When: October 3-5, 2018. Where: First Pres San Diego. This second events is the Fellowship’s annual theology conference whereat we work through the foundations of our faith and how they inform and motivate our ministries. Cost: $125. The featured speaker is Rev. Dr. Joe Small. These two events will be held in succession for those who would like to attend both. You can register by going to www.fpcsd.org, click on events, then special events and the rest is self-explanatory.
B. ACTIVE SHOOTER TRAINING: Unfortunately, this kind of training is now more germane than ever before in view of the acts of terrorism in our schools and churches. PLCPC recently engaged with Homeland Security and the SD Police Department for an on-site assessment and a training seminar, respectively. I asked Jerry Heidt, an elder at PLCPC, who coordinated with these entities if he’d share his contact information with me, and I encourage all of our churches to follow through with the assessment and trainings. You might consult with your insurance carrier on your proposed training. Here’s the info:
