Responding to the Syrian Crisis

Peace be to the WHOLE community, and love with faith— Ephesians 6:23

Syria girlsIn the past two weeks, many Presbyterians have inquired about how the Peace & Global Witness Offering might be used to help Syrian refugees. Part of this year’s offering will be used to support Syrians displaced by violence. In order to help you interpret this work in your congregation, we are providing a minute for mission and bulletin insert specifically lifting up these efforts. These materials can be accessed here.

During this Season of Peace, the Syrian refugee crisis has provided a striking example of the need for Christ’s peace in the world. If you need additional information or materials for the Peace & Global Witness Offering, call 800-524-2612 or email.

In addition, if your congregation is so moved by the tragedy of the Syrian crisis, the 25 percent of this offering that is traditionally retained by the congregation can be contributed to our shared witness to Christ’s peace among Syrians displaced by violence by including it when you remit your gift.

Thank you for your support of the Peace & Global Witness Offering.
