The top 10 things that happened at the
PCUSA 222nd General Assembly
(18-25 June 2016)
– June 27th blog written by Rev. Carl Wilton, Pastor of the Point Pleasant Presbyterian Church
and Stated Clerk of the Presbytery of Monmouth
Blog Preview: the number-one thing this Assembly did was to complete the process of adding the Belhar Confession as the twelfth confessional document contained in the Book of Confessions. While this was pretty much a foregone conclusion — since more than three-fourths of the presbyteries have already given their required assent — still, it is of great historic significance. After the positive vote, theologian Allan Boesak of South Africa, one of the authors of the Belhar Confession during the apartheid era, addressed the Assembly. He ended his remarks by saying, “We may not know what tomorrow may bring, but I know this: tonight, we have overcome. I know this: because of Jesus, we shall overcome. I know this: whatever may come in our world, we shall overcome.” In a moving moment, the Assembly responded by spontaneously breaking into song, singing — what else? —“We Shall Overcome.”
The Belhar Confession – a moving call for reconciliation, and a condemnation of racial injustice written in the crucible of the struggle over apartheid – is a significant addition to the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s Book of Confessions. Belhar becomes the first confession from the global south that the mostly-white PC(USA) has ever adopted – and the PC(USA) has done so at a time when racial tension, injustice and violence in the United States make headlines nearly every day.

MARQUE SIGN IMPROVEMENT
June 2016 – Andrew Kelly, a member of BSA Troop 246 sponsored by Lincroft Presbyterian Church chose as his Eagle Scout project to greatly improve and enhance LPC’s marquee sign at the corner of West Front Street and Everett Road. The metal sign has been cleaned, scraped, sealed and painted. The bushes under the sign have been removed and replaced with a raised garden and dwarf bushes.
LPC college students Krista and Sydney
share their Mission Trip activities this spring, 2016
Sunday, May 22, 2016
Two of our LPC college students, Krista and Sidney, went on mission trips during the spring 2016 semester.
They presented first-hand stories about there experiences and what they learned about
rural poverty and the needs and rights of children of seasonal/migrant farm workers.
– They made pressentations to the congregation immediately after worship.
Over Spring Break, 2016, we volunteered with the East Coast Migrant Head Start Project, a federally funded program for the children of seasonal and migrant farm workers. This program ensures that these families are aware of all their rights for themselves and their children once they enter the American education system. The program provides a culturally sensitive classroom with both Spanish- and English-speaking teachers so that the children can adjust to the US culture and succeed in school but also continue to understand where they come from and remain fluent in their own language. As volunteers we got to help the teachers with projects for family day events and to build playground structures while also getting to know the staff and children!
Every year Duquesne University sponsors several Cross Cultural Mission Experience (CCME) trips for student volunteers. As part of the spring 2016 program I went to Mullens, West Virginia, for five days at the end of February/beginning of March to work with members of the community both to help in some way to stimulate their failing economy while also engaging in achieving a better understanding of the underlying causes of rural poverty.
We pray for all in need.
