PerCapita:Return for your Giving

Per capita funding is how Presbyterians mutually share the costs of coming together to discern the Spirit’s leading for the future, how we are trained for service and learn to answer the call on our lives.

It is how Presbyterians participate in the life of the Church universal as we commit ourselves to work and live in fellowship with “all persons in every nation” (Book of Order, G-4.0101)

Folder for Stated Meeting March 18, 2014  


The Stated meeting was held at The First Presbyterian Church in Englewood.  Rev. Richard Hong, together with his staff and volunteers welcomed members of the Presbytery and provided a comfortable and welcoming space to lounge, fellowship and do business together. Rev. Hong led an abbreviated “Tenebrae” Special Service, conductive to a contemplative atmosphere of meditation on Good Friday events. 

There was a Pre-Presbytery time for information sharing about the proposed Policy Proceeds from the Sale of Property of Dissolved Churches.

Highlights of the Stated Meeting, January 28, 2014

Pictures from January 2014 Stated Meeting The theme of the stated meeting, as stated by the host pastor, Rev Gareth Icenogle, was geared towards helping the hungry and reaching out in compassion to those in need.  Towards this end the dinner was comprised of soup and bread, so that the proceeds would be directed to the Centre of Food Action in Mahwah.  During worship canned foods and monetary donations were also collected.  The Sermon, by Rev. Icenogle was entitled “Criteria and Judgment: Caring for the Family”, most fitting with the theme of the day. 

Staff and volunteers, although very busy with other church affairs,  graciously helped ensure the smooth running of the meeting.

Summary of the proceedings:  

  • The past Moderator, Rev. Debra Given, led the service of installation of the new Officers, Elder Paul Talarico, Moderator, and Elder Patricia Pastas, Vice-Moderator.  Rev. Given propounded the constitutional questions and exchanged the symbols of office.
  • The Transitional Leader, Rev. Marianne Rhebergen, in her report, highlighted past and present successful initiatives and some future challenges. Rev. Rhebergen also shared about the deliberations coming up before the 221st GA and the changes in the Medical Benefits for 2015.
