There are two important grants available to the presbyteries of our Synod as part of our 300th Synod Anniversary. They must be applied for through the Presbytery Office. Contact the office if your church is interested in more information.
1. Sowing the Future Grants are for global mission partnerships and need to be requested by the presbytery. These are easy, no-brainer grants, offered as a way that the Synod of the Trinity can support the special mission emphases of our region. Who can you check in with to make sure that these monies are dispersed to your presbytery sooner rather than later? The exec or stated clerk? The moderator? The chair of a mission committee or task group? Please nudge these folks and share the paperwork with them.
2. Freedom Grants are a regional complement to the national Freedom Rising Emphasis relating to African American males. What communities or congregations might best take advantage of this opportunity? Can you provide us with contact information for a congregation, individual or community organization connected to the church who might want to apply? THE DEADLINE FOR THESE IS JUNE 30TH and it is important to get these out there!
