“Blessed are the Peacemakers…”   (Matthew 5:9)

 

What was previously known as the Peacemaking Offering has been transformed into the Peace and Global Witness Offering.  This new Offering will have a greater global reach, more significant impact, and bring peace to people through Christ.  The Peace and Global Witness Offering was received on World Communion Sunday, October 1, but donations can still be made.  Send your gifts to the church office and mark your check to indicate that it is for the Peace and Global Witness Offering.

 

Today, the Presbyterian Church (USA) is actively engaged in peacemaking and reconciliation in more than 50 countries.  Through our partner churches and organizations, our reach is extended to 100 countries.  Your gift helps the PC(USA) do even more.  In too many places around the world, peace is merely a hope.  Conflicts between nations, peoples, and ideas put peace at risk everywhere.  During the Season of Peace, we recognize that too many people live in situations that are both unsettled and unjust.

 

Your gift to the Peace and Global Witness Offering works to address these deep-seated problems by supporting efforts to inspire, equip, and connect Presbyterians engaging in ministries of reconciliation and peace around the world.  Through missions, work projects, and education, we witness to the peace of Christ for our sisters and brothers as they face some of the greatest challenges of our time.

 

Peace Begins With Us.  When we think of conflict, many of us think of places mired in war, a world away.  Yet often, some of our greatest opportunities to witness to the Prince of Peace are right outside our doors.  When you give to the Peace and Global Witness Offering, 25% of your gift is retained by TPC, bringing the power of reconciliation and the peace of Christ to our community.  Traditionally one half of this amount has been designated to send members of our youth group to Presbyterian Youth Triennium.  The other half has been used to promote peace in our community in many ways.

 

Your generous support of the Peace and Global Witness Offering compels change in cultures of violence. Together with the Peacemaking Program and World Mission, our community in Christ builds communities of peace.

 

Help bring the peace of Christ to communities of conflict.  Please give generously!
