2017 Remits and Referrals 2017-07-28T11:46:42+00:00

Each year the General Assembly sends referrals to the synods, presbyteries and sessions. Referrals include items that the courts are asked to study and report back to the particular committee, reports for information and legislative decisions.

The 2017 referrals are now available for download. A letter to the courts of the church with additional information will be available by the end of August.
