GRAYDE PARSONS WILL NOT SEEK THIRD TERM

The church lives its life through the liturgical seasons. Those seasons remind us of the biblical story and prepare us to celebrate the gift of God’s grace in Jesus Christ. In Advent we live in a season of expectations—the expectations of awaiting the promise of new life and a new way of living.  I firmly believe the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has entered into a new chapter of its common life. That chapter is full of much promise as we continue to follow God into the world. It also is my belief that this new chapter needs new leadership. I am therefore officially announcing that I will not stand for a third term as Stated Clerk.  CLICK HERE for the entire letter.

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
