PC(USA) and The Hudson River Presbytery
The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has over 1.6 million members and nearly 10,000 congregations that are organized into 173 presbyteries (regional governing bodies) and 16 synods (larger governing bodies). The Hudson River Presbytery is spread across 8 counties and 81 congregations.
Bi-annual General Assemblies bring democratically elected commissioners from across the church together for worship, education, discernment and action. The decisions made by the General Assembly become church policy. Read more about the General Assembly of the PC(USA).
The 222nd General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), will be held June 18–25, 2016 in Portland, Oregon. Thousands of Presbyterians will be participating in GA from across the country and around the world. The GA will be deliberating on a wide range of important issues.
