Peace & Global Witness Offering (Donate online)

Each year during the “Season of Peace,” which runs through September and ends on World Communion Sunday, which this year is Sunday, October 7, Presbyterians around the world contribute to our “Peace and Global Witness” offering.
This offering exists to support our call to witness and work for peace, from our own local communities, to the far reaches around the world. It seeks to alleviate and end suffering and violence in all settings.
50% of this offering is utilized by the Presbyterian Mission Agency to advocate for peace and justice in cultures of violence, through collaborative projects of education and Christian witness. One example of this is supporting peace efforts in South Sudan and to help Sudanese people in refugee camps across the border in Uganda.
25% of this offering supports regional Presbyterian mid councils, and 25% stays with our church to build up peace in our community in ways we seem fit. Examples of local assistance include funding scholarships for students recognized as peacemakers, resettlement of refugees and supporting shelters where those who are abused may find refuge.
We hope that you will join us in our Peace and Global Witness offering to help promote our witness and work for peace, both here in our local community, and throughout the world.
We will have offering envelopes in the Sanctuary pews. We will be accepting this offering until Sunday, October 7.
