Hands & Feet is a new initiative to highlight and strengthen local and national efforts by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to facilitate change and communicate God’s love. The project builds upon the grassroots, community work congregations, mid councils, and the national office are already doing; and dovetails with the biennial General Assembly gathering. Work is underway via Hands and Feet and The Center, a ministry of the Presbytery of Baltimore. We encourage you to engage with mission and ministry projects on the ground in Baltimore, MD, site of the 224th General Assembly (2020) scheduled for June 20–27, 2020.
