Living Our Faith Together
Presbyterians are called to love and serve God and to care for those who are in need.
Adapted from Living Faith 2.3.2
 When we give to Presbyterians Sharing,
we are expressing our faith. Through the words we use, the decisions we make and the actions we take, we proclaim God’s love, hope and grace in the world God loves. Together, in The Presbyterian Church in Canada, we are continuing Christ’s ministry in Canada and around the world.
The direction of our shared ministry is set at General Assembly. Together, we send mission staff to accompany and encourage international partners. Grants support strategic ministries, bring together new communities of faith, and provide synods and presbyteries with funding for staff
and events to serve local needs.
Theological colleges and national programs prepare ministers, elders and lay leaders
to serve the church. The Presbyterian Connection newspaper shares stories of hope and challenges. Volunteers, staff, committees and working groups develop educational resources, lead conferences and webinars, provide coaching and mentoring, share best practices, write letters to governments, reect theologically and participate in ministry programs.
When we put our gifts into God’s hands, God does remarkable things!
