A presentation by Mission Partners Rev. Elmari and Rev. Scott Parker January 8 at 7:00 pm at Community Presbyterian Church.
Rev. Elmarie Parker serves as a Presbyterian Church (USA) Associate for Ecumenical Partnerships in the role of Regional Liaison to Church Partners in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon.
Rev. Scott Parker serves also as an Associate for Ecumenical Partnerships working with the Middle East Council of Churches based in Beirut, Lebanon. They will lead a discussion regarding current conditions in the region where they work and live, along with how these conditions (including ISIS) are impacting PCUSA Partners and their continuing work of worship and ministry. Though there is much over which to be deeply concerned, there are also stories of hope to be heard and shared. Bring your questions and come ready to hear the witness received first hand from local church leaders on the ground in these areas of conflict and chaos.
