On a recent online children's Sunday School lesson at Elkton Presbyterian Church in Elkton, MD, kids were reminded of how helping others is the best way to show God's love. They were encouraged to think of ways they could show that love towards our sister church in the Congo.


Some kids came up with the idea of making homemade necklaces which will be sold, and those profits will go directly to our sister church in the Congo to help with their piggery. Now that is showing pure love for our brothers and sisters in Christ!


What a joyous celebration! The joy of singing at Sunday School at Pastor Tshibuabua’s Dinanga church.

"Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.

I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands."

Psalm 63:3-4

Wonderful news from our Congo sisters and brothers! Please congratulate Pastor Thierry Mukekua who was just elected the new Executive Presbyter of Kananga Presbytery.

On the same day of our Presbytery meeting this Saturday, January 17, 2021, the churches in Kananga Presbytery will gather in a central church to celebrate Pastor Lazare Tshibuabua’s 25 years as Executive Secretary.

He leaves this position to begin a new one as director of

Community Development for the Congo Presbyterian Church. His successor is Pastor Thierry Mukekua, pastor of Oecumenique Church, which is Simon Ntumba’s home church and sister church with Westminster Church in Rehoboth.

We are grateful to Pastor Tshibuabua for his strong leadership in our Congo Partnership and congratulate him on his new assignment.

We also welcome Pastor Mukekua and look forward to a fruitful relationship.

May God bless their ministries.
