Peace & Global Witness Bulletin Insert - Create a World of Peace

Mon, 06/29/2015 - 08:45

Help bring the peace of Christ to communities of conflict.

Today, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is actively engaged in peacemaking and reconciliation in more than 50 countries. Through our partner churches and organizations, our reach is extended to 100 countries. Your gift helps us do even more. In too many places around the world, peace is merely a hope. Conflicts between nations, peoples, and ideas put peace at risk everywhere. During the Season of Peace, we recognize that too many people live in situations that are both unsettled and unjust.

Your gift to the Peace & Global Witness Offering works to address these deep-seated problems by supporting efforts to inspire, equip, and connect Presbyterians engaging in ministries of reconciliation and peace around the world. Through missions, work projects, and education, we witness to the peace of Christ for our sisters and brothers as they face some of the greatest challenges of our time.

Mon, 06/29/2015 - 08:38

Peace Begins With Us. When we think of conflict, many of us think of places mired in war, a world away. Yet often, some of our greatest opportunities to witness to the Prince of Peace are right outside our doors. When you give to the Peace & Global Witness Offering, 25% of your gift stays local, bringing the power of reconciliation and the peace of Christ to your own community. During this Season of Peace, consider the difference your gift can make to challenges like these.

Your generous support of the Peace & Global Witness Offering compels change in cultures of violence. Together with the Peacemaking Program and World Mission, our community in Christ builds communities of peace.

Dependent Care Reimbursement Policy for Commissioners and Advisory Delegates to the 222nd General Assembly (2016)

Tue, 06/23/2015 - 13:41

The Committee on the Office of the General Assembly has approved the following Dependent Care Reimbursement Policy for the upcoming General Assembly.  Briefly, it seeks to be both more generous and flexible by providing for an increased maximum reimbursement for dependent care expenses incurred during the assembly (up to $800 for one dependent, and $400 per each additional dependent) and recognizing additional categories of expenses eligible for reimbursement. The main part of the policy specifies that:

Commissioner or Advisory Delegate may include in vouchered expense, the cost of dependent care under the following circumstances:

  • The dependent is a child under the age 18 or an adult dependent requiring care, and is the responsibility of the commissioner or advisory delegate;
  • The care replaces that which is normally provided by the commissioner or advisory delegate or supplements care at the assembly;
  • The expenses do not exceed $800 per dependent or $400 per additional dependent.

We hope that this will enable more teaching and ruling elders to consider serving as a commissioner to the assembly; please share this full policy as you recruit individuals for this important work.
