The One Hundred and Eleventh Stated Meeting of the Presbytery of the Northern Plains will be hosted by the First Presbyterian Church of Moorhead on Friday and Saturday, October 24-25, 2014, commencing at 1:00 p.m. on Friday with a worship service. Registration begins at 11:00 a.m.





All congregations are required to have their Session minutes and their church register records (2 books) reviewed annually, according to the Book of Order.  The review sessions listed below are excellent training opportunities for clerks of session.  At these review sessions, you will exchange minute books and church registers with another clerk or moderator and each will read the other’s records.  These procedures are outlined in the Presbytery’s Manual of Administrative Operations, Section P.6.0108.
