Special Offerings

Special Offerings: Peace & Global Witness, September 5–October 3, 2021 (World Communion Sunday)

Peace Without Walls

The Peace & Global Witness Offering provides the means that allows us to offer ourselves to the pursuit of ending violence and bringing reconciliation, no matter where it occurs in the world. Your gift will help more people experience the freedom and dignity that Christ wants for everyone, everywhere— regardless of boundaries or the walls that separate us. Let us offer the peace of Christ in all times and all ways.

Peace at All Times

A gift to the Peace & Global Witness Offering offers light to those in the shadows and guides us all into the ways of peace. We come together to promote the peace of Christ by addressing systems of injustice in our own communities and around the world.

  • 25% stays with our congregation to support peacemaking and reconciliation in our own community. Oak Grove will be working with Minnesota Council of Churches (MCC) Refugee Services on ways to support our newly arriving community members.
  • 25% will go to joining with other congregations in our area to support peacemaking work in our region.
  • 50% supports the work for peace and reconciliation being done by Presbyterians across the globe.

You can help by sending your check to Oak Grove Presbyterian Church and specify Peace & Global Witness on the memo line. If we all do a little, it adds up to a lot. Thanks for your consideration!

peace be with you
