PEACE & GLOBAL WITNESS OFFERING
Sunday, October 4, 2020 the Mission Team and Christian Education gathered, with safety precautions, to prepare sack lunches for the congregation to pick up in a “drive thru” for donations to the church’s Peace and Global Witness Offering. This offering is one of the 4 special offerings our church participates in through the year. The donations are distributed locally and throughout the world, here’s information the PCUSA website provides:
”A gift to the Peace & Global Witness Offering enables the church to promote the Peace of Christ by addressing systems of conflict and injustice across the world. Individual congregations are encouraged to utilize up to 25% of this Offering to connect with the global witness of Christ's peace. Mid councils retain an additional 25% for ministries of peace and reconciliation. The remaining 50% is used by the Presbyterian Mission Agency to advocate for peace and justice in cultures of violence, including our own, through collaborative projects of education and Christian witness.”
