What you’ve known as the Peacemaking Offering has been transformed into the Peace & Global Witness Offering. This new Offering will have a greater global reach, more significant impact, and bring peace to people through Christ.
The Peace & Global Witness Offering is received during the Season of Peace, which ends on World Communion Sunday.
HOW IS MY GIFT USED?
A gift to the Peace & Global Witness Offering enables the church to promote the Peace of Christ by addressing systems of injustice across the world. 25% of the offering remains with the local congregation for use in understanding and engaging in peacemaking. 25% is shared with the Synod of the Pacific for ministries of peace and reconciliation. The remaining 50% is used by the Presbyterian Mission Agency to advocate for peace and justice in cultures of violence, including our own, through collaborative projects of education and Christian witness.
In all cultures of violence, God spreads a table of peace before us. Your support of the Peace & Global Witness Offering helps bring more people to that table. On World Communion Sunday, we are reminded that God’s love can heal even our deepest divisions.
We will collect this offering until Sunday October 9.
