Migration and Ministry Trip to Guatemala
(from our World Mission Moderator, Mary Jane Winter)
Presbytery Trip to Guatemala October 28-November 4 offered by the Presbyteries of Peaks and James and sponsored by CEDEPCA (Protestant Center for Pastoral Studies in Central America), a mission partner of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Learn about the root causes of migration, who is leaving and why. Engage with people at the margins. Be a witness to Christ’s presence and experience how the church is seeking to respond. Learn from our partners at CEDEPCA what our role can be.
This trip will encourage us to grow as global Christians and connect us with our brothers and sisters in Guatemala, especially through the ministry of CEDEPCA. A unique highlight of this trip is an opportunity to experience the famous Giant Kite Festival on the “Day of the Dead” (Nov. 1).
Cost is $950 plus airfare; and if finances are an impediment, funds are available through the Presbytery. Please see Liz about this trip. She may want to join you!
Harriett Tubman - release date on Nov 1. Who wants to go?! We could go together! November 10 or 11?
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood - release date on Nov. 22. Let’s go together sometime after the release date!
Presbyterian Women will meet on the first Monday of every month starting October 7 at 10 a.m. We will meet at The Martha Jefferson House, enjoying the hospitality of Jessie Haden. Please let us know if you’d like to join us. We will order the curriculum this Thursday. Pastor Liz will offer transportation from Crozet.
"The 2019—2020 PW/Horizons Bible study, Love Carved in Stone: A Fresh Look at the Ten Commandments, examines How do we live out our relationship with God and with one another in a world that is often ruled by other standards? What is the pain from which God seeks to protect us in the Ten Commandments? How can a fresh embrace of the Ten Commandments contribute to the restoration of ourselves, our communities, and the furthering of the gospel in the world? Each lesson begins with an exploration of one of the Ten Words in its biblical context. From there we consider a moment from Jesus’ life that shows us how he lived out that Word. We then consider the Word for our own lives and contexts. We conclude with an invitation to pray with the Word in our circles or study groups and in our personal devotions."
