On Tuesday, September 25th, the National Capital Presbytery will hold their regular meeting at National Presbyterian Church, 4101 Nebraska Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20016. The Business Meeting begins at 6:00 pm. The agenda will include a vote by the membership of Presbytery on calling the Rev. Scott Ramsey to Lewinsville as Senior Pastor/Head of Staff.
Lewinsville’s Pastoral Nominating Committee brought this recommendation to the membership of Lewinsville at a called meeting of the congregation on Sunday, July 29th, and the recommendation was passed unanimously by written ballot. Because it is unusual for an Interim Pastor to be called as the Pastor by any PC(USA) church, this action must be ratified by the full Presbytery on September 25th. Our Presbytery’s Committee on Ministry fully supports the recommendation.
Lewinsville’s three Commissioners to Presbytery will be the only Lewinsville members allowed to vote on the recommendation at the September 25th meeting, but we invite any Lewinsville members to attend the meeting to watch the proceedings and lend their presence as support.
The PNC letter to our congregation is posted below as well as Lizzie Steel’s report to the congregation on the PNC’s recommendation made on July 22, 2018.
