Church Ministry and Outreach Committee
The Mission work of Westminster Presbyterian Church is varied and active. Mission outrage includes our church, our community, our country and our world. Sometimes this is through planned annual projects. At other times it is spontaneous as when some members have gone to assist with the Presbyterian Outreach for flood victims and members have found ways to assist through special projects to meet urgent needs. There is always more information about these mission projects included in the monthly church newsletter. Here are some of our regular mission projects of the church:
World Communion Sunday – October 4, 2015
The Peace & Global Witness Offering—formerly known as the peacemaking Offering—supports the efforts of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to live out a deeper commitment to peacemaking as part of our faithfulness to God.
The allocation of our Peace & Global Witness Offering each year is as follows:
We will receive the Peace & Global Witness Offering Sunday, September 27 and during shared worship at the Galena Middle School on World Communion Sunday, October 4. The envelope in your offering boxes will say “Peacemaking Offering”; rest
assured that it is the same as the Peace & Global Witness Offering. The General Assembly in 2014 approved transforming the Peacemaking Offering to the Peace & Global Witness Offering to build on a rich tradition of our church’s commitment to peacemaking as well as to engage with our global partners in new initiatives of reconciliation.
Special envelopes are also available on the table in back of our own sanctuary. Please put your name on the envelope if placing it in the shared worship offering, so that we’ll know that your contribution is associated with Westminster. If you’d prefer to wait, you may also choose to give during worship at Westminster throughout the remainder of October.
2015 ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING
The Need is Great and So Is Our Calling
Since 1949 Presbyterians have shared God's love with our neighbors-in-need around the world through One Great Hour of Sharing Our Easter gift will be distributed as follows"
For 2015, we are collecting the One Great hour of Sharing (OGHS) offering on Passions/Palm Sunday, March 29 and on Easter Sunday, April 5. Please help us reach our goal of $600.00.
One Great Hour of Sharing "Fish" Banks
Throughout Lent and as we approach Easter, we have asked our young people (and any interested adults) to "count" items and then put a designated amount of change into their fish bank for each item counted.
Passion/Palm Sunday, March 29
We remember that Jesus was celebrated on Palm Sunday when he came into town. This Holy Week, put in one coin for every birthday you have celebrated. (For example, if you will be 80 this year, put in 80 coins. If you will be 5 this year, put in 5 coins.) Consider making a gift for someone having a special celebration (birthday, anniversary) this year.
Easter Sunday, April 5: One Great Hour of Sharing Received! Bring your fish banks to church.
