Welcome to the Presbytery of East Tennessee
In the Spotlight
and rescheduled for
Saturday, March 7, 2015
Northside Presbyterian Church
923 Mississippi Ave.
Meeting begins: 10:00am
Message from Presbytery Moderator Les Rust and Stated Clerk James McTyre:
Sisters and brothers of the Presbytery of East Tennessee,
As of this morning the Weather Channel shows an 80% chance of snow and ice on Friday night with accumulations of 1-3 inches; the lows on Friday night and into Saturday morning will be in the mid-20s throughout the Tennessee Valley. The National Weather Service says that Saturday morning will present a mix of snow, freezing rain, and sleet and that it will be in the afternoon before the temperatures rise and it turns to all rain. The forecast for the next several days does not have many locations rising above freezing so the ice and show that is present at the moment will not be thawing. Granted, the weather depends on weathermen about the same way that the economy depends on economists--neither can predict with 100% accuracy. But they can get close enough to warrant our attention.
Given the importance of the votes on the amendments and the desire for all presbyters to be able to participate, it would not be wise to meet when the chances of attendance are adverse;
Given that rescheduling in the short term also affects some who might have previous conflicts, and that rescheduling during Lent and Easter would present its own challenges;
Given that Paul and Northside need to know ASAP in order to inform the caterer;
We are postponing the Stated Meeting of the Presbytery until Saturday, March 7, 2015 at Northside Presbyterian Church in Chattanooga. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but our first priority is the safety of our presbyters.
