Even while looking back at what occurred earlier this summer during the 225th General Assembly, Presbyterian Peace Fellowship presenters kept their eyes focused on the road ahead during an hour-long online event Tuesday. Watch it here.
A desire to see the prison industrial complex replaced with a more equitable and caring system has brought together a group of like-minded people who are having meetings and raising funds to be donated to organizations that work with incarcerated individuals and their families.
In its first grant cycle of 2022, on behalf of the Presbyterian Mission Agency, the Mission Development Resources Committee awarded 19 Mission Program Grant to worshiping communities — including $10,000 Seed Grants to nine communities who are just getting started.
Two new worshiping communities, The Open Table in Kansas City and Ormewood Church in Atlanta, are receiving 2021 Sam and Helen Walton Awards.
In the fall of 2018, youth at Bon Air Juvenile Correctional Center (BAJCC) in Chesterfield County, Virginia, asked to start a gospel choir. The request reached the Rev. Lauren Ramseur and the Rev. Ashley Diaz Mejias who, along with friends, collaborated to support the initiative. Ramseur and Mejias soon discovered that they were “doing church” — gathering twice a month at the correctional center for a community of worship. The group named themselves the Voices of Jubilee.
