Many of us are very concerned about the deadly wildfires in Maui and want to help. The PCUSA denomination does not have a church on Maui to coordinate relief efforts. For now, let’s give through Maui United Way. The address is 95 Mahalani Street, Suite 24- Wailuku, Hawaii 96793. Their phone number is 808.244.8787.

A gift to the Peace & Global Witness Offering enables the church to promote the Peace of Christ by addressing systems of conflict and injustice across the world. Individual congregations are encouraged to utilize up to 25% of this Offering to connect with the global witness of Christ's peace. Mid councils retain an additional 25% for ministries of peace and reconciliation. The remaining 50% is used by the Presbyterian Mission Agency to advocate for peace and justice in cultures of violence, including our own, through collaborative projects of education and Christian witness.  We'll receive this offering on October 1, 2023, World Communion Sunday. Begin now to prayerfully consider what you will give.

To give through the PCUSA denomination to help people coping with natural disasters, you can give to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. The website address is:
