The Rev. Dr. J. Herbert Nelson, II (Stated Clerk) and Rev. Tricia Dykers Koening, Associate Director of Mid-Council Relations came to First Presbyterian Church in Brighton on Tuesday, February 19, 2019. Over 80 people from Denver and Plains & Peaks Presbytery, Utah and Wyoming Presbyteries, sat down to share a meal before engaging in the listening and question/answering session with the Stated Clerk of PCUSA. Rev. Nelson encouraged our minister, elders and churches to “GO!” Go out and make disciples. Being the frozen chosen isn’t going to work anymore. Church is happening outside the walls of our churches. We need to go out and meet people where they are.
“We are not dying, we are REFORMING!”
Matthew 28:16-20 The Commissioning of the Disciples
16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
