While there is no “right way” to challenge all of the “isms” we face, here are a few suggestions to consider-- both personal and congregational.
Coronavirus/COVID-19 Immigrant, Migrant, and Refugee Resources
Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations (PMUN) has compiled a new resource for Presbyterians. This 2-page country fact sheet on the Korean Peninsula summarizes the work currently undertaken by the various UN agencies. The fact sheet also highlights Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s historical and current partnerships with our church partners in the country, the guiding PC(USA) General Assembly policies on each country, and the ways PMUN addresses these issues at the United Nations.
Advocate for your congregation to prioritize Courageous Conversations, a PC(USA) call to stop sexual violence by preaching, teaching or holding a service of healing during the month of October. A list of resources are available for your use.
A World Uprooted: Responding to Migrants, Refugees and Displaced People.

Here is our newest definition of what we believe a new worshiping community is. It is based on numerous conversations with ministry colleagues in evangelism and church growth, theology, worship, and education, and racial ethnic ministries. We have also incorporated comments from GAMC members and mid-council leaders. Our hope for this definition is that it will both provide clarity and inspiration for this 1001 new worshiping communities movement.
