Presbytery of Prospect Hill
Focus on worship and missions
Presbytery of Prospect Hill embraces new areas of emphasis
The Presbytery of Prospect Hill, in an effort to change the focus of our presbytery meetings, decided in 2015 to totally redesign the format for our meetings. It was overwhelming embraced by our members. In the future, we decided, only the essentials of business would be conducted. Our focus would become worship-centered and missions-centered.
The hosting congregation for each presbytery meeting was given the opportunity to have presbytery meeting attendees bring several items to support a local mission. Our first meeting was held at Lakeshore Center, a Presbyterian camp and retreat center at Lake Okoboji, Iowa, and we brought office supplies and cleaning supplies so that money could be made available from the center’s budget for programming. The offering plates during worship overflowed with gifts toward their mission.
The presbytery is becoming re-energized in our growth to once again be a missions body, and a body that focuses on the worship of the risen Christ.

Let us pray
Our loving God, we praise you for nudging us to face the fact that at times we lose our focus on what you want us to do. Thank you for returning us to be your stewards and servants. Thank you for helping us to recognize opportunities before us. We are excited to walk through the previously unnoticed doors that you open before us. Amen.
