Mission Coordination Committee Description and Responsibilities As approved by presbytery on 6/8/21


Book Study Details:

Over the summer the Mission Coordination Committee is encouraging the churches of the Presbytery to read, together, the book, “I Was Hungry: Cultivating Common Ground to End an American Crisis” by Jeremy Everett. The book is full of stories and firsthand accounts of organizations working together to combat hunger in their communities. It also offers some tips on how to begin some of this work in our own neighborhoods. We hope that this book will spark some great conversations in your churches and inspire some collaboration in your communities. A discussion guide is available on the Presbytery website that may be used to get conversations going around the book, and around the issue of hunger.

One copy was given to each church at the June Presbytery meeting, but if you did not receive a copy of the book, a member of the MCC will be in touch with someone from your church soon to schedule a delivery.

We are encouraging your churches to gather in groups to discuss the book and its insights together.

The Committee also plans to offer 3 evening zoom sessions over the summer for any folks who are interested in discussing the book but may not have others in their churches to read along with them. You can register for those Zoom sessions through the MCC page on the presbytery website. The dates for the Zoom book discussions will be held from 7-8:30 PM on July 9 (Chapters 1-4), July 30 (Chapters 5-7), and August 20 (Chapters 8-10).

Finally, at the conclusion of the summer, we are beginning to plan a Presbytery wide event to discuss the book and how we might be able to collaborate together on hunger and poverty issues in our area. Please save the date for Saturday, September 30 and be on the lookout for more details through the Bi-Weekly Brief as we make our plans.

Please contact Jamie Milton ( ) if you have any questions.
