Rev. Phil Barrett was elected Stated Clerk and General Presbyter of the Des Moines Presbytery on Feb. 1, 1994 and has continued to serve the Presbytery since that time. During his tenure with the Presbytery, Phil has ministered to 63 churches, 90 pastors and 93,489 church members.

You are invited to attend a retirement reception for Phil onSunday, Nov. 22, as we celebrate with and congratulate Phil on his retirement after nearly 22 years of service. Join us at Trinity United Presbyterian Church in Indianola for a reception from 2-5 p.m. There will be a short program at 3 p.m.

BECAUSE SHE DOESN'T NEED ONE MORE SWEATER Saturday, Nov. 21, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., St. Paul Presbyterian Church in Johnston hosts its second annual Johnston Alternative Gift Market. You can "shop" from more than a dozen local non-profit organizations and 30 international products. Admission is free and more details are available on the attached flier, or at the church's website.

Ordinations are always a cause to celebrate. New church starts are nearly unheard of these days. And providing a worship experience for the Arabic-Speaking Community is no everyday occurance. Yet the Presbytery of Des Moines is honored to be experiencing all three on Sunday, Nov. 15, 4 p.m. at Cottage Grove Presbyterian Mission Center.

That's when Ekram Kachu, who came to the United States from Khartoum, Sudan, will be ordained as an elder in the Presbyterian Church, and then commissioned as a CRE (Commissioned Ruling Elder). Congratulations to Ekram and to her family!
