Season of Peace Sept 1st- Oct 6th
Today we begin the Season of Peace. Over the next five weeks, we will journey together through the Scriptures and through our own faith journeys to hear where and how Christ is calling us deeper into the work of holistic peacemaking.
For nearly 40 years, the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program has called churches to practice the things that make for peace and has helped us seek a just, holistic peace that is more than just the absence of violence. The money raised by the Peace and Global Witness Offering makes this work possible.
This year, as we journey through the Season of Peace, we will reflect on four specific areas of peacemaking:
• Poverty – How does addressing the root causes of poverty further prospects for peace?
• Racism –What does it mean to make peace by disrupting the structural violence of racism?
• Violence – How are Christian peacemakers called to respond to explicit violence?
• Refugees and Migrants – How can the church support people who have been displaced by violence and are subject to more violence on their journey?
The author of 1 Timothy likens the journey of faith to a physical training regimen. I invite you to join Presbyterians around the world this month as we “train ourselves for godliness” and strengthen our capacity for peacemaking.
Chili Cookoff and "Season of Peace" Craft Night
A new adventure as we combine a chili cookoff and our annual Season of Peace craft time on Saturday, Sept 28th at 5pm!
Bring your favorite chili recipe to share for the cookoff contest.
Following our feast, we will have craft time to make a project in celebration of the Season of Peace. We will proudly display our art during worship service on Sept 29th and all attendees are encouraged to wear their tie dye best!
We will end the event with a campfire, sing along, and some delicious s'mores. A fun time indeed to share with our church family and friends!
PEACE is ACTIVE, not PASSIVE
PEACE is DOING, not WAITING
"Now may the Lord give you peace... give you peace at all TIMES in all WAYS" 2 Thessalonians 3:16
The 2019 Peace & Global Witness Offering encourages the church of our time to cast off anxiety and fear, discord and division, and embrace our reconciling God's mission to those around the corner and around the world.
By supporting the Peace & Global Witness Offering, we work to share Christ's peace with one another, beyond our doors, beyond our community, and across boundaries. This offering, received on World Communion Sunday 10/6/2019, will strengthen collaboration with churches, mid councils, and mission partners all over the world. 25% of the offering will be retained by our congregation for a local mission.
God has called us to help His children, the question remains.... will you help?
