October 2011: Peacemaking Offering

Posted on : Sep 8th, 2011 | By | Category: Special Events

On Sunday October 2nd we celebrated World Communion Sunday, and once again during the month of October we will receive our special offering for Peacemaking.  Half of the offering is used by our congregation.  This year we will donate our half of the offering to the Water Purification Project of our Mission Partnership in Nicaragua.  Chris Cheng just returned from Goyena, Nicaragua where he personally witnessed the need for water purification for the villagers.  In the four small villages that are part of our partnership none of the homes have running water.  All water is drawn from common sources!  Thus, entire villages benefit from water purification projects!

The other half of the offering is shared among the Presbytery, Synod and General Assembly for our regional and national ministries of peacemaking.

Your gifts make a huge difference in people’s lives!
