PEACE & GLOBAL WITNESS OFFERING

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. 500 million people live in countries at risk of instability and conflict. 1.3 million people are killed each year by violence.  80% of children living in urban areas have witnessed community violence.  70% of women experience violence in their lifetimes.  More than 1 in 3 American women have been victims of violence at the hands of a partner.  20.9 million people are trapped in forced labor. The Peace & Global Witness Offering is received during the SEASON OF PEACE  SEPT. 6 - OCT. 4, 2015, which ends on World Communion Sunday. Individual congregations are encouraged to utilize up to 25% of this offering to sustain their local peacemaking ministries.    Your support of the Peace & Global Witness Offering also allows us as a Presbytery to contribute to important peacemaking efforts in and beyond PEVA boundaries.   CLICK HERE FOR INSERT
