PEACE AND GLOBAL OUTREACH

FPC Supports Efforts to combat Ebola in Liberea as an expression of Peace and Global Outreach on World Communion Sunday!

World Communion Sunday is a tradition begun by the PC(USA) and adopted by the National Council of Churches to encourage our experience of being the body of Christ together and members of it individually. It is traditionally celebrated on the first Sunday in October. That is also the day we collect the Peace and Global Witness offering. A portion of this offering is combined accross the PC(USA) to support local and global initiatives of peacemaking. FPC will retain 25% of what we collect and will use it to support the Change Agent Network's efforts of collecting and distributing supplies to combat the Ebola virus in Liberea.
