PCC MISSION MOMENTS We have much to teach

Pray for the 20 congregations attending the Stewards By Design conference in Orillia, Ontario this week (November 9-12). Keynote speaker Dr. Kennon Callahan will inspire participants as they learn how to nurture faithful giving and abundant living, expand and strengthen their mission and ministry and make generous giving an ongoing, joyful experience. Dr. Callahan will work with each team to develop a concrete plan suited for their unique situation. A past conference participant shared, “What a tremendous event! The worship was truly inspiring, the fellowship was joyful and the prayers are uplifting. The conference sessions were a true blessing for us all. We learned much and now we have much to teach.” About half of the cost of Stewards By Design is funded by gifts to Presbyterians Sharing and undesignated bequests.
