895th gathering may 12

895th Gathering of Presbytery of Baltimore

The 895th Gathering of Presbytery will be held on Thursday, May 12th, at 10:00 am. This will be the first in-person meeting since the pandemic began, and will offered in a hybrid format. That means although we look forward to being with everyone again, the option to attend online will also be available.

Worship will be celebrated in addition to conducting business, and Open Spaces will be held at 1:00, after an hour lunch break.

Although the agenda is light, the meeting will proceed at a relaxed pace, to allow folks to reunite and also to work through and introduce a new system that includes hybrid features, so that people at home can fully participate.

The Gathering will be live-streamed using the Zoom platform, and we will be using the same software to register both online and in-person attendance, so please complete the form even if you plan to participate in-person.

Gathering Guidelines  – Driving Directions

The Gathering will be generously hosted by First Presbyterian of Howard County, and we ask that people visiting respect our host’s COVID-19 safety protocols. Visitors are expected to:

– Be vaccinated
– Wear a mask indoors, except when eating or speaking
– Maintain social distancing
– Refrain from touching or hugging unless color-coded name tag indicates that the bearer is comfortable with contact.

Child care is not scheduled to be available at this time, but we would like to hear from parents of little ones, so that we can best accommodate this need in the future.
