2009 Peacemaking Offering

The 2009 Peacemaking Offering will be collected on World Communion Sunday, October 4, at both services.  This PC(USA) offering supports the efforts of Presbyterians to work for justice and peace through their own congregations, presbyteries, synods and the General Assembly.  Twenty-five per cent of the offering remains local and this year this will go to the Mar Elias Educational Institution.  The schools were founded by Archbishop Elias Chacour in Ibillin, Israel to bring Jewish, Muslim and Christian students together to learn and build relationships with one another.
