APPENDIX E

REPORT OF THE MOUNT HOPE COMMISSION

to Trinity Presbytery meeting February 16, 2018


The Mount Hope Commission is continuing to provide oversight for the Mt. Hope congregation. Rev. Duane Dougherty attends the worship services regularly and provides counsel and a line of communication with the commission and presbytery. Mount Hope continues to have worship services at 1 p.m. every Sunday. The message is brought by Rev. Chad Hlavaty who is an ordained member of the New Life congregation in Henderson. Chad is employed by the Gilmer ISD as a full-time teacher and coach. He shares Bible based messages that are consistent with Cumberland Presbyterian theology. Rev. Hlavaty met with the Probationer’s Committee in January 2017. Elder Mary Tremble plays the piano for worship. There are as many as 9 in attendance in these services. Lance Jorgensen and his family are regular participants. Following the worship service there is a time of discussion and fellowship. Communion is served quarterly by Rev. Dougherty and Elder Tremble. Ministry is happening at Mount Hope Cumberland Presbyterian Church. We encourage the ministry at Mount Hope and request your prayers for its future success.


Respectfully submitted,

Duane Dougherty, Chair
