The Synod Committee for Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation is offering small grants to churches to reach out and initiate an event or exchange with a church of different ethnic background. DETAILS/APPLICATION
The Peacemaking Offering may be taken at any time, although most churches select World Communion Sunday as the date. A quarter of the offering goes to the Synod committee responsible for peacemaking awareness and events, a quarter to the local presbytery, and half of the offering goes to G.A.The Presbyterian Peacemaking Program is surely among the finest ventures of Christian discipleship our church has been involved with.
