Change bags aren’t  just for change anymore: There are a variey of tools that do not require high tech equipment or a brain surgeon to use when teaching others about Jesus Christ.  Change bags, evangecubes, stickers, flaming Bibles, and other items can be used to teach children, youth and Alzheimer patients.  Simple messages about the love of Jesus.  Persons attending the seminar will learn how to use such tools to minister to the needs of others, and how to obtain them.  Facilitator will be the Rev. Dr. James Behrens.
Perspectives: “God has a world-sized role for every Christian in God’s global purpose: Whether people go to distant countries or stay at home is a secondary issue. The primary issue is what most people are hungry to discover vision to live a life of purpose. Discovering that vision makes this course valuable, and perhaps crucial, for any Christian.  This class will introduce you to “Perspectives: a 15 week course that will be offered this year, designed around four vantage points or ‘perspectives’ – Biblical, Historical, Cultural and Strategic.  Each one highlights different aspects of God’s global purpose.”  Facilitator will be Roberta Updegraff


Giving Tuesday – Changing Lives


Time for Presbyterians to up their game!

In 2013, the Methodists raised $5 million in one day for mission and ministry.  The day was Giving Tuesday – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.  And the Presbyterians? We raised about $100 that day. What can we do?

We have nearly 2 million generous souls who claim the Presbyterian moniker.  That is a good place to start.  We also have an online giving system ~ The Presbyterian Mission Exchange.  Best of all, we have a theology that inspires us to give out of gratitude for all that God has given us. Giving our first fruits – the best we have to offer – is core to who we are as Christians.

So join your fellow Presbyterians and participate in the third annual #GivingTuesday supporting  mission and ministry around the world and here at home. The Presbyterian Mission Exchange makes it easy to do all your online giving in one place.
