Peace and Global Witness Offering
Collected October 6

The Church and Society ministry team has selected the Richmond Peace Education Center (RPEC) as the recipient of our churches 25% portion of the Peace and Global Witness offering which will be collected on October 6.

The Peace and Global Witness Offering, one of the PCUSA’s Denominational Offerings, promotes the peace of Christ by addressing systems of injustice across the world. Individual congregations are encouraged to utilize 25% of this Offering to benefit global peace efforts, local councils will utilize 25% for local ministries of peace and reconciliation, and the remaining 50% is used by the Presbyterian Mission Agency to advocate for peace and justice around the world. Established in 1980, RPEC promotes peaceful conflict resolution, social justice, and nonviolent social change in the Richmond region through workshops, public events, youth programs, and training sessions.

!!! BIG SUCCESS STORY FOR RISC !!!

 

RISC (Richmonders Involved To Strengthen Our Communities) first took on “jobs” as an issue in 2012. The research team investigated many aspects of the need for jobs in the Richmond area and soon learned that there were many people unemployed or underemployed and many, many jobs in the healthcare industry that were unfilled because of the lack of basic training for the positions. In 2014 RISC approached VCU Health Systems as well as HCA and Bon Secours and started the conversation about what RISC was then calling, The Workforce Pipeline. Many conversations ensued with a fair amount of pushback initially but RISC persevered and, in time, VCU became more receptive to RISC’s ideas. Fast forward to August 2019: RISC members met with VCU Health administrators and learned just how far VCU had run with the pipeline program. It has been renamed, VCU Pathways to Health Care Workforce, and is directed by Dr. Harrison Hayes who will be our speaker at Bon Air’s RISC Kick-Off dinner on October 10th. The program is up and running with great success: to date 106 participants have gone through the various aspects of job training and 37 people have been hired for fulltime positions at VCU and Bon Secours. Most of the participants are recruited from RVA high schools and at present, there is a waiting list of young people who have applied for the program. RISC is very grateful to the VCU leaders who have made this success story possible. Plan to attend the dinner on October 10th to learn more about the pipeline and to be part of the decision making process for the next RISC action to be undertaken. This is our justice ministry and we can all be proud of what RISC is accomplishing in our community.

 

 

WANTED – PILGRIMS TO WALK IN THE STEPS OF JESUS

Celebrate Orthodox Christmas in Bethlehem!

December 29, 2019 – January 7, 2020

             Join fellow pilgrims on a 12-day journey to the Holy Land as we walk in the steps of Jesus.  Our pilgrimage will bring you close encounters with the land of ancient Judaism and Christianity. Watch the scriptures come to life as you walk through the wilderness and pray in the Garden of Gethsemane. Experience modern religious traditions as we worship with local Christians on the celebration of Epiphany and Orthodox Christmas and bring in Shabbat with local Jews. Learn about the modern history of this land and meet people and organizations engaged in the work of peacemaking. Build deep and lasting relationships with others from our church family through group reflections and shared worship.

The land cost for our 12-day pilgrimage is $2765, airfare brings the total cost to $4265/person, double occupancy.  This cost is inclusive of all meals, taxes, and gratuities, so we won’t have any extra expenses other than souvenirs, snacks, and extra drinks.

For registration, itinerary, and more information, visit our pilgrimage website:  www.progressivepilgrimage.com/bonair.  Feel free to talk with Pastor Janet about this wonderful opportunity to celebrate Christmas at the birthplace of Jesus.
