Giving in gratitude for God's gift

Join us on June 4, 2017, as we celebrate the Day of Pentecost. On this day we join with Christians around the world to celebrate God’s gift of the Holy Spirit to the church.


The Pentecost Offering benefits children at risk, youth, and young adults. 40% of the offering stays with our congregation for ministry with children at risk. The other 60% will support General Assembly advocates for children and provide leadership development for our youth and young adults. The latest volunteer opportunity for young adults aged 19 to 20 is YAV (Young Adult Volunteers) sponsored by General Assembly.

Now called Peace and Global Witness Offering

On World Communion Sunday, Christians everywhere take communion together, each in their own way. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) affirms that nonviolence is both a way of life and a tactical method for followers of Jesus. The Presbyterian Peacemaking Program helps people explore nonviolent living, learn about nonviolent tactics and strategies and identify opportunities for engagement in nonviolent actions. The local church retains 25 percent of this offering. The Mission Committee has decided to send our 25 percent to Domestic Violence Relief at the YWCA, especially since October is Domestic Violence Awareness month in our denomination. The remaining offering is divided between Presbytery/Synod (25 percent) and the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program of the Presbyterian Mission Agency  and Presbyterian World Mission (50 percent).
