Mission and Peacemaking (MaP)
Mission and Peacemaking activities at Immanuel Presbyterian Church (IPC) are coordinated by the Mission and Peacemaking committee. MaP is composed of individuals from our church community. Meetings are open to all who are interested in Mission and Peacemaking.
Stewardship – We are charged with dispersing funds and sharing of resources to show God's love of this world. We focus on giving that addresses needs in our local and global community and that increases social justice. Details about organizations we financially support can be found on our Giving page.
Service – As followers of Christ, we are called to serve. We seek and organize opportunities for IPC members and friends to serve the needs of others through “hands-on” experiences. Details about opportunities can be found on our Immanuel is Involved page.
Peace and Social Justice – As witnesses to the Gospel, we addresses activities and incidents that prevent the expression of Christian love and compassion. We seek ways to increase peace and social justice through stewardship and service.
Meetings are held on the second Monday of the month at 7 p.m. in the Fireside Room. Check the calendar for upcoming dates.
Join us! All are Welcome!
Immanuel Presbyterian Church is now a partner of Charter for Compassion International (CCI)
After hearing Karen Armstrong’s TED Talk on her vision to make religion a force for global harmony, it was suggested that our church become a partner of the organization that grew out of that vision. The Session has learned more about CCI and voted to approve becoming partners with it.
As a Partner of CCI we join a “network of networks” and can:
Help create, build, and sustain the worldwide network of Compassionate Communities
Share our experiences & learn from others.
Have a link to our website on the CCI website
Receive CCI newsletters to learn of the worldwide activities of the Charter for Compassion
Gain access to a private Facebook group
Be invited to listen and participate in telephone conference calls
Originally, thousands from around the world added their voice to the writing of the Charter for Compassion. Since then, CCI has formed to give life to the principles articulated in the Charter through concrete, practical action in a myriad of sectors throughout the world. Cities, organizations and individuals can join. You can read the Charter for Compassion, learn more about CCI, and see the rich resources available on their website at: www.charterforcompassion.org
