Being a Partner Congregation

All partner congregations are asked to send a representative to the Peru Table that meets a few times a year. (Anyone is welcome to join this table of passionate people.) For more information, please contact the synod office.

We agree that we will share in being a partner congregation relationship with mutual respect by:

  • Praying for our partner congregation in worship once a month (or more)
  • Monthly contacts to listen to one another, throug email, What’s App, Zoom, or however the two congregations agree.
  • An annual visit to Peru by a couple of people in the congregation.
  • If there is a need for financial support and the congregation has the resources, this may be an aspect of the relationship by mutual consent, but the prayer and visits are the highest priority.

Please contact the synod office if you are interested in becoming a Partner Congregation in Peru.

As it is, there are many parts, but only one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you.”

~ 1 Corinthians 12:20-22a
