The Peacemaking Partnership of the Presbytery of Greater Atlanta is a group of representatives from congregations within the presbytery who usually meet on the 3rd Saturday of each month (excluding July) at 10:00 a.m. at North Decatur Presbyterian Church to study and discuss the work of peacemakers in the world. We welcome any congregation to be represented or come as visitors.
We are stewards of the Peacemaking Offering funds that are given to the presbytery. Our budget includes support for a variety of PC(USA) ministries - International Peacemaker, mission co-workers based in our presbytery, Global Peace and Justice, Washington Office of Public Witness - as well as interfaith ministries in Atlanta. We support peacemaking ministries in congregations within the presbytery and welcome requests for funding for those ministries. Please contact Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org to subscribe to our newsletter (or you can view it on the Presbytery web page for our partnership).
Promote the annual Peacemaking Season and Offering. Using the portion of the offering allocated to us we do the following:
Award scholarships for Presbyterians, including students, to attend conferences and seminars
Sponsor an international peacemaker to visit in our presbytery each fall.
Distribute peacemaking materials and promote programs from PCUSA Compassion, Peace and Justice Ministry
Share grant monies with congregations
Provide sponsorship monies for speakers and organizations active in peacemaking
