Join us on Sunday, September 16, 2018, as we welcome Missionary Elmarie Parker in worship (and at Adult Ed. at 9:30 A.M.). Elmarie and her husband Scott began their current work in July 2013, moving to Beirut, Lebanon, at the beginning of Advent in December 2013. This is a call that takes up all the threads of their previous ministries and personal experiences and is weaving them more deeply into Christ’s work in the world.
The regional liaison position for Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq is filled by Elmarie Parker. The heartbeat of her work is to help deepen and strengthen the relational ties between Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) church partners in her region and Presbyterian constituents in the United States. More specifically, she facilitates Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) support for partner programs, relationships and activities, and implements the PC(USA)’s international partnership strategy. She facilitates and seeks to strengthen healthy, effective and appropriate relationships among entities of the PC(USA) and those of partner denominations and organizations in the region. Additionally, Elmarie supports PC(USA) co-workers serving in this region in communications, information sharing, mentoring/guiding, encouraging, and reflection.
