Provide Safety, Sustenance, and Hope
In this time of COVID-19, One Great Hour of Sharing is more important than ever. The offering supports three programs - Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, the Presbyterian Hunger Program, and Self-Development of People - that provide people with safety, sustenance, and hope. Encourage your congregations to join the One Great Hour of Sharing movement, whether the offering is received on Easter Sunday, April 4, or on any day of the year.
Learn about Disaster Relief in Guatemala
World Mission Ministry invites you to learn about the efforts of our mission partner CEDEPCA (Center for Pastoral Studies in Central America) in helping the citizens of Guatemala. Join via Zoom on March 24 for “After the Storms: CEDEPCA’s Response in Times of Disaster.” A portion of the One Great Hour of Sharing offering goes directly toward CEDEPCA’s disaster ministry in Guatemala, allowing you to see firsthand the impact of your contribution. Pre-registration is required. A donation of $11 is suggested for each participant.
When Physical Touch is Impossible
Southminster Presbyterian Church found a way to simulate online a treasured tradition. The new version was just as meaningful as the original.
Grant Program Preserves Houses of Worship
The National Fund for Sacred Places is a matching grant program that offers technical assistance and financial support to actively-worshiping faith communities who are working to preserve their historic houses of worship. Matching grants for capital improvement projects range from $50,000-$250,000. Letters of Intent are due March 15.
Check our online bulletin board to be reminded of events mentioned in recent issues of the Current.
