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.
