PCC MISSION MOMENTS Fostering discipleship

With the support of a coach, provided through gifts to Presbyterians Sharing, Église St- Luc’s leadership team in Montreal is learning ways to evangelize and foster discipleship beyond Sunday mornings. They started with one mid-week Bible sharing group, which quickly grew to three, and now a fourth is in the works. Like Paul and Barnabas in Acts 13, members of Église St-Luc are actively sharing the gospel, and the good news of Christ’s saving power is spreading “like wildfire all through the region” (v.49; The Message).

Presbyterians Sharing engages in evangelism, outreach and discipleship

PCC MISSION MOMENTS – Bright Futures for Youth in Guatemala With Presbyterian World Service & Development support, children living in the rough neighbourhood surrounding Guatemala City’s garbage dump are accessing education at the Francisco Coll School. Students who excel qualify for scholarships to further their education, while other graduates pursue vocational training in order to achieve employment. A letter from a recent graduate is a testament to the importance of the project that is equipping students to pursue their dreams: “I am in my last year, with just a month to go before I accomplish my dream of being a professional and continuing my studies at university. I give you thanks because with your extraordinary effort, I will have a better future full of opportunities to help my family and grow.” PWS&D responds with education to build bright futures

 PCC MISSION MOMENTS Pancakes and a Play                                        Last winter, the caring Sunday School class at St. John’s Presbyterian Church in Toronto, ON, hosted a pancake lunch in support of Presbyterian World Service & Development. After reading a short play to illustrate PWS&D’s mission and vision, the children invited guests to feast on pancakes and syrup, yogurt and fruit as they passed around a donation basket. “St. John’s Sunday School pancake lunch raised over $900 for PWS&D,” shares Laurie McGugan, the event organizer. “We were happy that we got so many people out!” Whether saving pennies, launching a campaign or holding a fundraising lunch, generous support from Presbyterians across Canada sustains programs that are building a more sustainable, compassionate and just world.

Faithful to our calling, we respond together

PCC MISSION MOMENTS Creating new paths of generosity

In April, members of the Stewards by Design planning committee attended the “Pathways to Generosity” conference at King of Glory Lutheran Church in Dallas, Texas. They were inspired by dynamic worship, a diverse group of keynote speakers and workshops on topics ranging from preaching stewardship, narrative budgets, stewardship and social media, legacy giving and the stewardship of creation. The team also met with Dr. Kennon Callahan, keynote speaker for the next Stewards by Design conference planned for May, 2019. Members returned home ready to create new paths of generosity in the PCC’s stewardship ministry.

 PCC MISSION MOMENTS Achieving Independence Through Agriculture Training

Esther Beza has many responsibilities. The Malawian farmer takes care of her four children and her elderly parents, all while farming two hectares of land. But with changing rain patterns, low soil fertility and poor access to seeds, Esther’s crops didn’t yield enough food to feed her family. Esther had been skipping meals, but things changed after she participated in an agricultural training project with Presbyterian World Service & Development and Canadian Foodgrains Bank. “I no longer struggle to find seeds, and I have learned to use pig manure for fertilizer,” shares Esther, motivated by the fruitful results of the farming techniques she’s learned. Esther no longer worries about anyone going hungry.

 PCC MISSION MOMENTS Attending to physical and spiritual needs in Saskatoon

The cost of living in Saskatchewan is rising, making it even more challenging for those on the margins to make ends meet.
