Give a Christmas Gift from PEC

                                        Help to Grow PEC for the next 25 years

PEC had a milestone birthday this year - 25 years young! We celebrated on ZOOM by looking back over our first quarter century with a hundred online guests. During that time, we advocated for God’s good creation by connecting, equipping and inspiring Presbyterians through 11 in-person conferences with 5 optional local experiential excursions, at 16 General Assemblies and PEC Luncheons, and by presenting 50 awards to individuals and organizations. Your support made all this possible, and now we ask for your contributions while we head into our next 25 years.

As we look forward, we will continue to advocate for our common home with overtures, our popular Advent and Lent Devotionals and in churches through our new Presbytery Earth Care Program and Guide for Starting a Church Earth Care Team.

This time in history is full of challenges, for PEC and for all of us. Yet opportunities also abound during the pandemic, including the blessing of working virtually with our first ever intern, Jonathan Lee from Yale Divinity School. Looking ahead to 2021, PEC will be holding a hybrid or fully virtual biennial conference in addition to our regular schedule of communications and advocacy.
So, with gratitude and hope, we ask you to consider supporting PEC with a financial gift as we prepare for our next chapter, starting in 2021.
This Christmas, in addition to your own donation, consider making a gift to PEC in honor of a loved one. PEC is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and all donations are tax-deductible.

Thank you for all you do to help people of faith recognize the earth care challenges we face.  Thank you for your prayers, your encouragement, your involvement.  Let’s hope that in 2021 we will be able to see one another “face to face” at our biennial conference!
Rev. Dennis Testerman, Moderator
PS – If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to write to us or one of our six regional representatives to the Steering Committee.
