    PEACEMAKING FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SYNOD

    Please use the scroll bars to access the full text, including the link at the bottom.


    Every World Communion Sunday (the first Sunday in October) is an opportunity for taking the Peacemaking Offering, a quarter of which goes to the Synod committee responsible for peacemaking awareness and events, a quarter to the local presbytery (if still organized for such gospel-based witness), and a half of the offering to G.A. In its 34th year the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program is surely among the finest ventures of Christian discipleship our church has been involved with.

    PDF Application guidelines for Synod Peacemaking funds are available at this link.
