Per Capita is the administrative cost of our higher governing bodies. It is based on the number of active members in each congregation. Every congregation is expected to pay the Per Capita for the entire year.
Our church will pay:
Many of you use the Per Capita envelope in your boxes. If you do not have the Per Capita envelope but would like to contribute your portion, you can send a check to the church office with Per Capita written in the memo line. The amount is figured as follows:
Please come out to the Seamanville Cemetery to tidy up the graves of the Veterans for Memorial Day on Saturday, May 25, and Sunday, May 26.
We will be cleaning/edging around the markers. No special skills needed. Contact Shay C. or Cliff B. for more info.

Every three years, the Presbyterian Church (USA) holds a church wide gathering of youth at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. This year, the Youth Triennium will be held on July 16-20.
Thousands of youth with their adult advisors meet to worship, share fellowship and deepen their faith. "I Am" is the theme for the 2013 Youth Triennium: It is a theme all about identity- the identity of God and our identity as children of God.
Hudson River Presbytery is sending a delegation of youth (entering high school through graduated seniors) to the 2013 Triennium. We look forward to meeting and hearing from interested youth nominated by your church who wish to learn and grow in faith through the experience of attending the Youth Triennium in 2013.
This link contains information and an application form for youth you would like to nominate to participate in the Presbytery delegation. There is no limit on the number of youth a church may nominate, so please make copies as needed. All youth nominated should be well known to you, and demonstrate maturity and responsibility as assessed by the congregation, and endorsed by the pastor or clerk of session.
The cost of Triennium is $925 per person, which includes registration, accommodations, meals and transportation. This is a profound, once in a lifetime experience for everyone who participates and we hope that local congregations will be able to find creative ways to help make this affordable for all those who wish to attend.
The application must be returned by November 30, 2012, to: The Rev. Rhonda K. Kruse, Hudson River Presbytery, 655 Scarborough Road, Scarborough, NY 10510.
We encourage you to contact either of us with questions or concerns. We are serving as the event coordinator and registrar.
