223rd General Assembly

Our call is to be movers and shakers within the PC(USA) and beyond, encouraging one another to take seriously God’s call to God’s people to participate in God’s nonviolent work of love, peace, and justice in the world. Advocacy at General Assembly is an important part of answering this call.
