Branch Meetings

In their second year, branch meetings are a new way for churches in four regions of the Presbytery to connect. By interacting in these non-business meetings, laypeople and clergy can get to know one another better. Ultimately, we can nurture one another and our churches.

Niagara/Northeast Branch
Monday June 12, 2017 - 6:30-8:00 p.m.

First Presbyterian Church of Alden
13298 Broadway, Alden 14004

Food * Fellowship * Mission * Song
Our hosts will provide a summer meal. We’ll spend time discussing how the funds donated to the Presbytery by churches in our branch can best be allocated for mission activities. Please bring your ideas for uses of the $4500 in mission funds.
While the meal is free of charge, we need RSVPs for planning.
Please RSVP to Stuart Buisch,, (716-713-6488) or Mary Beth Karr,,  (716-870-6276).

Southwest Branch
July 13, 2017 - begins w/dinner at 6p, ends w/worship no later than 8p
Hamburg Presbyterian Church
177 Main Street, Hamburg

Our discussion will follow and will focus on the Presbytery. At our last meeting we began this discussion with the question: What can we create together as churches of this Presbytery that we can’t create alone? At the July meeting, we will continue this discussion and explore other questions as well. Do we want to be connectional? How can our participation in a Presbytery strengthen our service in Christ’s name? What do we want to offer to the process in which the whole Presbytery is engaged? This is your chance to share your thoughts so please join us. After the discussion, we will come together for worship.
Please join us for fellowship, worship, and an important conversation about how we are being called to serve God in Western New York. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
RSVP by July 6, 2017. Call Cynthia Wickwire Lundquist, Branch Coordinator, anytime with any questions: 679-1501 or
