Historical Sketch
AND THIS IS THE WAY IT WAS:
On June 27th1871, a petition was presented to the Butler
Presbytery by the Rev. Carl Linn and signed by twelve
persons requesting the establishment of a German
speaking church. Their request was granted and the
church organized on July 8th1871, by the name of
Linnville Presbyterian Church, consisting of nine
members and afterward ten were added. The original members were: Frank Fruth, Mrs.
Anna Fruth, Carl Goebel, Mrs. Elizabeth Goebel, George C.Grabe, Mrs. Elizabeth Grabe,
Wilhelm Montag, Mrs. Catherine Montag, Edward Montag, Mrs. Maria Montag, John Cooper,
Mrs. Hannah Copper, MariaG. Cooper, Caroline Cooper, Catherine Cooper, Gottlieb
Steinhauser, Carl Steinhauser, Fredrich Siebert and Mrs. Chrstina Siebert. On April 22nd
1873, the name was changed to the German Evangelical Presbyterian Church.
From the beginning, the church at Jefferson Center struggled for survival. Five years after
its organization, the church had no pastor or supply and the session did not meet. The Rev.
C.A. Limberg (1885-1897) was forced to break the exclusive use of the German language
because the young people of the church could not read German. He first preached one
English sermon a month in the evening, and by 1902 German was no longer used in the
church.
Through the efforts of Rev. A.J. Sauerbrum the church gained strength. His own modest
assessment of the church was this:
“The people simply plodded long and patiently carried on, and so managed by the grace of
God to keep the church in a prosperous condition, and in some instances, setting a worthy
example to other churches in the Presbytery.”
May God give us the grace to move forward in His will, no longer struggling for survival, but
rather serving Him with all our strength.
About Pastor
Rev. Jonathan West has been the Pastor at Jefferson Center Presbyterian Church since
2013. He grew up in Florida and Georgia, and attended Georgia Tech and Columbia
Seminary in Atlanta before accepting the call to serve at Jefferson Center.

WHAT IS YOUR CONGREGATION DOING
TO EDUCATE A CHILD?
A GRANT OPPORTUNITY
A major concern for Christians everywhere is the education of the next generation.
Our Denomination has adopted a mission they are calling, “Educate a Child,
Transform the World.” The goal of the campaign is to educate one million
children worldwide by 2020.
To help with this ambitious goal, the Peacemaking Committee is offering to each
congregation a minimum grant of $100 from the Peacemaking offering to assist in
the support of educational ministry. This grant is available to congregations in
Beaver-Butler Presbytery that are already involved, and those congregations that
want to initiate, an education ministry in their own communities as well as
supporting schools and teachers in other parts of the world. Examples of ministry
might be: launching or supporting a tutoring program; providing school meals
and/or supplies (backpacks, teacher materials, etc.); conducting or supporting an
after-school program or a preschool for community children; honoring the
teachers in the congregation (better yet, in the whole local school); supporting an
educational ministry in another country.
Let us know what you are doing and give the Presbytery an opportunity to share in
supporting it through a gift from the Presbytery’s share of the Peacemaking
offering. Or take the ideas presented here to your congregation and initiate an
educational ministry in your church.
To apply for this grant, send a letter or an email describing your involvement in
“Educating a Child, Transforming the World,” and the amount requested to the
Peacemaking Committee at the Beaver-Butler Presbytery office.

To: Coordinating Team of Beaver-Butler Presbytery
From: Refreshing Springs Ministry Task Force
The Refreshing Springs Ministry (RSM) Task Force is requesting that Beaver-Butler
Presbytery allocate/grant $45,000 from the accumulated funds from departed
congregations in order to:
1. Equip RSM to operate on a firmer footing by providing for a facility in Aliquippa and
a van.
2. Serve the larger church by providing mission team training opportunities that would
also benefit RSM by leading to the rehabilitation of its property in Aliquippa.
3. Provide salary support for RSM’s pastor, Rev. Tega Swann, for a 3-year period. (As a
matter for separate, future consideration, we believe the Presbytery should prepare
for a commitment to sustain Rev. Swann’s salary, long-term, at minimum terms of
call with Board of Pension benefits. This would become mandatory when/if Rev.
Swann is received as a regular minister member of our Presbytery.)
This project is thoroughly missional in that it is a response to what God has already been
doing in our midst. We are encouraged that, based on their involvement and support,
at least a dozen of the congregations of our Presbytery seem to be resonating with
RSM’s mission and ministry. We intend to grow that number as we interpret the work
of RSM to the churches of the Presbytery.
We believe RSM should be viewed as a “local mission” as much or more than as a new
church development. Due to the needs of the population RSM seeks to serve, RSM may
never become a self-sustaining, chartered congregation in the traditional sense.
Attached is a 3-year financial plan, which also details some of the specific activities this
project will make possible. Note that a New Initiatives Grant of $45,000 will also be
requested from the Synod of the Trinity. Some of the project’s goals will require upfront “capital” expenditures. We envision the Presbytery’s funds as going primarily for
these costs in the first year. The Synod funds and other sources of funds would be used
primarily for “operating” expenditures over the full three years.
The RSM Task Force asks that the Coordinating Team submit this proposal to the
Presbytery for a First and Second Reading process, with the First Reading at the March
29th stated meeting.

January 23, 2016
The Beaver-Butler Presbytery held a stated meeting at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, January
23, 2016, in the Center Presbyterian Church, Slippery Rock, where the Rev. William
Mumaw serves as Pastor.
WELCOME:
At 10:00 a.m. our Moderator, Teaching Elder Dr. Mary Kitchen, welcomed the
presbyters and offered prayer.
The presbyters were welcomed by a representative of our host church, Ruling Elder Carol
Lambert, who provided essential information.
A prayer of thanksgiving and commemoration was offered by our Moderator for Ruling
Elder Lois Pacillo, a member of The Galilean church, who died on January 21, 2016.
Lois had been quite active in her church and the Presbytery, having most recently served
on the Financial Planning Committee.
Teaching and Ruling Elders attending a Presbytery meeting for the first time were
introduced. The Rev. Betty Angelini, Executive Director of Crestfield Camp and
Conference Center, a member of Pittsburgh Presbytery, was welcomed and seated as a
corresponding member.
ANNOUNCEMENTS AND PRESENTATIONS:
Ministry Partnership Unit:
The Rev. Paul Merrill, a member of the Ministry Partnership Unit, introduced Sidney
Fisher and Diana Mermon.
Sidney Fisher, Resource Center Director, announced that a Cokesbury VBS preview date
has not been set yet, and that commitments are needed from at least 5 churches to hold it.
She also announced that the Resource Center has a complete set of Feasting on the Word,
Year C, to be given away by a drawing among those who sign up for it.
Diana Mermon, Presbytery Youth Coordinator, noted that she is available to help with
church youth groups. She promoted a multi-band youth event at Consol Energy Center
on Saturday, January 30th. She also announced that registration is open now through
April for this summer’s Presbyterian Youth Triennium, and that she is willing to come
speak to churches’ youth about the Triennium.
Refreshing Spring Ministry Task Force:
The Rev. C.F. Hoffman, chair of the task force, could not be present. The Rev. Alan
Adams introduced the Rev. Tega Swann, pastor of RSM. She thanked the Presbytery and
its churches for their financial contributions and partnership with RSM, and reported that
the number of participants in the ministry is now around 50. Worship is at 6:00 p.m. on
Page 24 of 35
Saturday evenings. Since meals are an essential part of the ministry, Rev. Swann asked
churches to consider helping by preparing one of the meals. Another essential part of the
ministry is Rev. Swann’s response to people in times of crisis.
Camp Crestfield:
The Rev. Betty Angelini, Executive Director of Camp Crestfield, invited the presbyters
into “smore” (some more) ministry of partnership with Crestfield. She noted the variety
of retreats available for youth, women and other groups in Crestfield’s modern retreat
facilities. Crestfield is prepared to work with churches on VBS’s that would include a
day at the camp.
ITEMS OF GOOD NEWS:
An opportunity was provided for ruling elders of congregations to present stories of the
good news within their congregational life. Several did so.
• As part of an on-going outreach through music, the North Butler church recently
hosted the Glory Way Gospel Quartet.
• The Parker church enjoyed a Christmas program at which Allen and Mary Kitchen
provided music.
• The Covenant church in Butler recently shared a meaningful Reaffirmation of
Baptism service, and is supporting the community dinners in Butler.
• Harry Thompson Green, who was raised in the Center church, Slippery Rock, was
recently ordained as a Russian Orthodox priest.
• The playground at Crestview has been refurbished and is in use, and the church’s
Kids’ Club ministry is thriving.
The above preliminary matters having been addressed, the formal stated meeting began at
10:30 a.m. Our Moderator, the Rev. Dr. Mary Kitchen, now presiding.
“OUR FATHER, WHO ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE THY NAME…”
MEETING PART ONE: OPENING PRAYER AND THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Moderator offered an opening prayer. The presbyters then offered a unison Prayer of
Blessing and prayed The Lord’s Prayer together. A gathering hymn, Here I Am, Lord,
was sung.
Our Moderator presided in the installation as Vice Moderator of Ruling Elder Tom
McMeekin, who had been elected at the November 17, 2015 stated Presbytery meeting.
“THY KINGDOM COME…”
MEETING PART TWO: SEEKING GOD’S KINGDOM TOGETHER
PRESBYTERY REFLECTIONS:
First Corinthians 2:1-5 was read by our Moderator, who then delivered a homily in which
she encouraged the presbyters to “be amazed” throughout this year at what God is doing
in our midst, and to celebrate and give thanks because God is “the real deal.”
Page 25 of 35
Presbyters were given a brief opportunity to discuss in small groups what they heard from
God in the Scripture and homily.
ANNUAL MEMORIAL SERVICE:
The Presbytery shared in a Time of Remembrance in order to commemorate those ruling
elders, deacons, ministers and trustees of the Presbytery who died during 2015. After
prayer, the hymn, For All the Saints, was sung.
“THY WILL BE DONE, ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN…”
MEETING PART THREE: SEEKING AS ONE TO DISCERN AND DO GOD’S WILL
Our Vice Moderator, Ruling Elder Tom McMeekin, now presiding.

record of attendance at this meeting may be found at Attachment A.
The Stated Clerk’s Statistical Summary of the Presbytery for 2015 is at Attachment B.
EXECUTIVE PRESBYTER CONSIDERATIONS:
Our Executive Presbyter, the Rev. Alan Adams, made a substantial PowerPoint
presentation on the “State of the Presbytery” as of the end of 2015. He detailed statistics
regarding the Presbytery’s membership, finances, number of churches, and pastoral
leadership. For each of these categories, Rev. Adams provided “typical presbytery”
perspectives. He then presented the focus of four groups established by the Coordinating
Team to plan and move the Presbytery into the future.
Because of the usefulness of this presentation in understanding the current life of BeaverButler Presbytery, the text of Rev. Adams’ PowerPoint is provided at Attachment C.
COORDINATING TEAM CONSIDERATIONS:
The Rev. Randall Clow, Moderator of the Coordinating Team, thanked the Rev. Adams
for his on-point presentation, and asked the presbyters to pray for the Coordinating Team
when it is on retreat at the end of this month, working on the very things just discussed in
Rev. Adam’s presentation.
Rev. Clow then reported that the Saxonburg Memorial Presbyterian Church has requested
a Presbytery Response Team (PRT).
Rev. Clow reported that the congregation of the Mill Creek U.P. Church, Hookstown, has
approved the Offer Sheet for its dismissal. He moved, on behalf of the Coordinating
Team, that the Presbytery accept the Offer Sheet (Attachment D, with a settlement
amount of $106,500) for the dismissal of the Mill Creek church to another Reformed
Body.
The motion was approved. Rev. Clow led in prayer for Mill Creek’s continuing ministry
as the church makes this transition.
