We are connected through our church.
     Our church - the PCUSA - is made up of churches, presbyteries 
     and synods across the U.S.A.
          The PCUSA is a "denomination" and is also governed by a council - 
          the General Assembly Mission Council (GAMC).
     Our church - the PCUSA - is connected with other reformed churches around the world.

These reformed churches connect in the World Communion of Reformed Churches.

We are connected through our roots and vision.
     The World Communion of Reformed Churches is part of the Church in the world.
          The Church in the world is what is often called "catholic" (small "c") 
          or "the universal church." 
     Our congregation is connected in all of these ways to the larger Church in the world.


We are connected through Christ.
