We've Been Featured
Becasue of our work with 'One Great Hour of Sharing' this past month. There's a great article on the Presbyterian Mission Agency (PMA) website about Special Offerings that features our own Birch Run-Taymouth, Pastor Scott, and Elder Kathy Maurer.
"If we all give a little — a cup of coffee a couple of times a week — together we can make an impact. That is what it means to be the connectional church." - Kathy Maurer, elder at Taymouth Presbyterian Church in Birch Run, Michigan, and Presbyterian Mission Agency Board
Acknowledging the collective impact small gifts can make, small church designates October to support One Great Hour of Sharing. If there can be Christmas in July, why not Easter in October? Or Palm Sunday, for that matter?
Reconfiguring the traditional and liturgical calendar was precisely what the First Presbyterian Church of Taymouth in Birch Run, Michigan, did after Bonnie Pratt, who chairs the church’s Mission Committee, originally approached the session back in February 2020. Pratt’s proposal that the congregation receive One Great Hour of Sharing during Lent ended up being sidelined. That is, until now.
