MISSION CAPSULE: The youth at Grace Presbyterian Church in Calgary are bettering the health of their local community while also supporting the well being of the global community. Members of the congregation donated to PWS&D in support of the teens’ efforts to pick up litter, rake and sweep around the church’s property. In the end, the group collected five large bags of garbage and raised $932.00 for PWS&D. “We were encouraged by our faith in Christ’s love to share our gifts with the world,” shares Roberto DeSandoli, young adult ministry co-ordinator at Grace. Across Canada, Presbyterians are stewards of the blessings of God - sharing our gifts to build a more sustainable, compassionate and just world.
