supporting congregations of the Presbyterian Church (USA) in northwest Georgia

what we do

01.

CULTIVATE LEADERS

We believe God calls out and sets aside leaders for particular circumstances, times, and places. We work with local congregations to identify, recruit, train, and support men and women who are ready to answer God’s call to leadership.

02.

SUPPORT CONGREGATIONS

Being the Church – people who demonstrate Jesus’ love and care for the world – is a spiritual task. It is also work that demands attention to many practical details. We work with congregations to develop and implement best practices for the stewardship – care and feeding – of people, leaders, buildings, property, and money.

03.

FACILITATE MISSION

Some projects are just too big to accomplish alone. When it is the best way, we help congregations and people connect to carry out the big projects – striving for reconciliation with God and neighors; battling for peace; standing for justice; and working to end suffering.

our denomination

seal
Cherokee Presbytery is a regional governing body of the Presbyterian Church (USA), the largest Presbyterian denomination in the United States. Together, we bear witness to the faith that is our hope:

``In life and death we belong to God. Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, The love of God, And the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one triune God, the Holy One of Israel, whom alone we worship and serve.

With believers in every time and place, we rejoice that nothing in life or in death can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.``

Talking to Strangers

For most of us, the caution of well-meaning adults is embedded deep in our bones. “Don’t talk to strangers.” From fear of being hurt to a concern we might be misunderstood or launch a debate we did not intend, or on some days just plain laziness, we just...
