Welcome to the Presbytery of the Northern Plains!
We are a mid-council of the PC(USA) residing in the Synod of Lakes and Prairies. We are made up of churches and worshiping communities in Eastern Montana, North Dakota and Western Minnesota. This is an exciting time in our Presbytery. We have recently adopted a new POD structure of governance. In April 2019 we welcomed our new Presbytery Leader, Rev. Marji Ackerman. We are excited and hopeful about the future and what God has in store. This site should be a resource page for needs, regardless of your role in the your church or the Presbytery. If you have any questions, please contact the Presbytery Office and we will do our best to help you.
As COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to spread and be a concern for many throughout our communities, presbytery, country, and world, we want to share important information are resources. We encourage you to look to the CDC and World Health Organization for facts on the virus and safety measures. The PC(USA) is also releasing information on safety precautions in churches. The States of North Dakota and Minnesota are also releasing information on safety standards and precautions. The links below are for the previously mentioned resources.
