Gentle reminder: since it is Summer, many are affected by vacations and travel.

Likewise, if your church is not able to send a Ruling Elder Commissioner according to our Standing Rules 4.6.3 & 5.3.1 you should request a Ruling Elder Commissioner excuse. Remember this is so that we keep a strong Ruling Elder involvement in our Presbytery!
