PCC MISSION MOMENTS

Take the Advent Challenge!

During the Advent season, we celebrate God’s amazing gift—Jesus! This gift changed the world. It is with this same spirit of generosity that we too can make a difference for our sisters and brothers across the globe. Each week of Advent, Presbyterian World Service & Development challenges individuals and congregations to share the gifts of hope, peace, joy and love with those living in some of the most vulnerable communities in the world. In the midst of poverty, injustice and disaster, the Christ light shines. To learn more about the Advent Challenge, visit WeRespond.ca.
