Our new name

Robinson Memorial Presbyterian Church and Elmwood Presbyterian Church have been living and worshiping together as one congregation for nearly three years – and have been working actively over the past year to make us legally one.  Both congregations voted unanimously on January 31, 2017 to unite.  In the process of asking the NYS Supreme Court to make us one new legal congregation, we discovered the need for a few minor revisions to the wording of our plan for uniting.  On Sunday, July 23, 2017, both congregations again voted unanimously to unite using the revised terminology.  We also took this opportunity to rethink what our new name shall be and decided that the previously approved name was just too long.  Although we will be legally two congregations with separate financial accounts until January 1, 2018, we are so excited about our new name that we wanted it to appear on our website and Facebook page now:    Robinson Elmwood United Church
 
Please note that any checks must, until January 1, still be written to either Robinson Memorial Presbyterian Church or Elmwood Presbyterian Church.  Thank you!
