The Synod Makes Peacemaking Funds Available
Every World Communion Sunday (the first Sunday in October) is an opportunity for taking the Peacemaking Offering, a quarter of which goes to the Synod committee responsible for peacemaking awareness and events, a quarter to the local presbytery (if still organized for such gospel-based witness), and half of the offering goes to G.A. In its 34th year the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program is surely among the finest ventures of Christian discipleship our church has been involved with.
Application guidelines for Synod Peacemaking funds are available HERE. The contact person is the Rev. Sunny Kang (e-mail) (cell 310-987-8048).
