Report of the Board of Mission. As directed by West Tennessee Presbytery, regarding the closing of Rives, Central Union, and Mt.

The properties will be turned over to the Board of Trustees for appropriate action. The membership of anyone left on the rolls of these churches will be moved to a Cumberland Presbyterian Church to be designated at a later date.
