Vision & Values

Vision

  • Cultivating Transformational Leaders
  • Equipping Christ’s followers to go into the neighborhood

Regional CRE Meetings

The Presbytery of Wyoming is committed to the transformation, support and care of our churches’ pastors and CREs. One way we do this is to bring them together three to four times a year in regional groups.

Tuesday, November 6th – Basin Group – Community Federated Church, Thermopolis – 10:00 am

Wednesday, November 7th – West Group – Star Valley Church, Thayne 10:00 am

Thursday, November 8th – Northeast/Central Group – First Presbyterian, Sheridan

Tuesday, November 27th – Southeast Group – First Presbyterian, Cheyenne


Communication Opportunity

Research Services of PC(USA) is eager to invite clerks of session of congregations in your presbytery to communicate their needs to PC(USA) national agencies via this fall’s Clerk’s Annual Questionnaire.

Ministries of the PC(USA) use our Clerk’s Annual Questionnaire to discern information from congregations. These ministries also use our Presbyterian Panel to learn what Presbyterians want and need, providing the Church with insights into general practices, beliefs and opinions.
