This year, Faith Presbyterian Church will give our portion of the Peacemaking Offering to two local organizations: The Habitat for Humanity, to help pay for the November volunteers and to Churches for Middle East Peace which is a coalition of 25 national church denominations and organizations working to encourage U.S. government policies that promote a just, lasting resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict (visit firstname.lastname@example.org). Look for more details in the coming October newsletter.
Please send your offerings through your local church.
“Gifts given to the Peacemaking Offering through a congregation are divided in the following manner – twenty-five percent retained by congregations for support of their own peacemaking ministry; 25 percent used to support presbytery and synod peacemaking efforts; and 50 percent forwarded to the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program of the Presbyterian Mission Agency so that it can continue to provide assistance and resources for congregations and other bodies of the PC(USA).” To find out more about Presbyterian Peacemaking Program, visit: http://www.presbyterianmission.org/peacemaking
Let us pray for peace and consider the peacemaking offering in October.
