Mission Committee

Our Mission Committee is a major emphasis for our work and support here in and around Everett, Washington. Every week our dedicated volunteers serve meals in unprecedented numbers to the marginalized in society with Dinner at the Bell. Your donations of time, gifts and talents also support other unique programs including Showers to the People. Our work in the community here and abroad continues through generous support for VOA, Souper Bowl of Caring, CROP WALK, Interfaith Family Shelter, Mar Elias Education Foundation/Pilgrims of Ibillin in Palestine, Christmas Joy, One Great Hour of Sharing, Pentecost and Peacemaking and Heifer Project.

Mission Committee meets on the 4th Monday from 5:30pm - 7:00pm in the Library. (Due to COVID-19, in-person Mission Committee meetings are cancelled until further notice.)

One Great Hour of Sharing 2021

The Special Offering of the PC(USA), are celebrations of specific ways God has been made known to us. Each is connected to a season of the church year and mandated by the General Assembly to help the whole Church join together in response to God’s grace. They represent the largest, collective way Presbyterians come together to work for a better world. The offerings actively engage congregations in ministries of compassion justice, hunger, Christian formation, education, peacemaking, and global witness.

We have one such offering during Lent - “One Great Hour of Sharing.” This offering is distributed as follows: 25% Presbyterian Hunger Program, 32% Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, and 32% Self-Development of People. This presents us with an opportunity to join other congregations in making an impact on the world.

One Great Hour of Sharing is traditionally received on Palm Sunday. However, since we will not be back in the pews, we are asking you to consider mailing your donation to the church. Return envelopes will be mailed out mid-March or you may make your contribution at any time by mailing a check to the church made out to First Presbyterian Church of Everett. Please remember to note that the offering is for “One Great Hour of Sharing.”
