Presbyterians across Canada are taking action and demonstrating that by working together, pooling our resources and setting goals, we have the power to make a difference.
Here’s how Presbyterians are showing God’s love to those in need!
The children at Bethel Presbyterian Church in Riverview, NB, were so touched by a PWS&D presentation about maternal and child health that they decided to raise enough money to buy a bicycle ambulance for a village in Malawi. To date, the children have raised over $460 – more than enough for one ambulance.
This past summer, the Cairn Family of Camps started an Empathy Project aimed at teaching empathy to campers by supporting various charities (what a great idea!). Generously, the children chose to donate $300 towards PWS&D’s maternal and child health project.
St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Aurora, ON, also raised money for PWS&D’s maternal and child health program in Malawi. Through a Gong Fu tea tasting, sold out roast beef dinner and a coin wrap campaign, the congregation raised over $2,250!
Each year Thornhill Presbyterian Church, ON, has a “Great Day” stewardship drive that looks beyond budgets and supports important missions and projects. As a congregation, Thornhill Presbyterian studied education opportunities in Afghanistan and global water issues. As a result of this special day, PWS&D received $4,600 towards these important programs.
