Denominational Offerings

As part of our connection to the mission of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), we receive three annual offerings that are used in specific mission areas.

 The Peacemaking Offering is received on the first Sunday of October and supports the efforts of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to live out a deeper commitment to peacemaking as part of our faithfulness to God.  Twenty-five percent of the offering stays in the local church for its peacemaking programs, twenty-five percent stays in the presbytery/synod for its programs, and fifty percent goes to the General Assembly for its national and international peacemaking efforts.

The Christmas Joy Offering is received on the Sunday before Christmas and is divided between support for clergy and their spouses who retired before the implementation of the pension plan and racial ethnic education institutions.

The One Great Hour of Sharing is received on the Sunday before Easter and supports the Presbyterian Hunger Program, Presbyterian Disaster Services, and the Self-Development of People.
