Join a Celebration Giving webinar

Celebration Giving webinars have returned! On December 1, join one of the two webinars dedicated to learning best practices for promoting giving to Presbyterian Women's mission and ministry. Celebration Giving Representatives (CGR) assist with interpretation and promotion of giving opportunities within Presbyterian Women, and can represent their congregation, presbytery and/or synod.  (And even if you’re not a CGR, join the webinar to learn about what gifts to Presbyterian Women will accomplish!) Once a month, the webinars will be held two times each day. The same material will be covered in each session; you need only join one.

RSVP now to join the December 1 webinar at noon or 7 pm (EST).

mother and child nutritionStart a conversation about child and maternal nutrition

The first 1,000 days of a child’s life are a critical window for creating a healthier and more prosperous future. Bread for the World's 1,000 Days movement promotes targeted action and investment to improve nutrition for mothers and children in the 1,000 days between a woman’s pregnancy and her child’s second birthday. And you can help.

By educating others (through a conversation or even a minute-for-mission), you can raise awareness around this topic. Download conversation starters to help focus your discussion on child and maternal nutrition. And get suggestions for action and advocacy to improve nutrition for women and children.
