One Great Hour of Sharing of the PC(USA): The three programs supported by this Offering – Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, the Presbyterian Hunger Program, and Self-Development of People – all work in different ways to serve individuals and communities in need. From initial disaster response to ongoing community development, their work fits together to provide people with safety, sustenance, and hope. We receive this special offering on Easter Sunday.
Pentecost Offering of the PC(USA): This Offering unites us in a church-wide effort to support young people and inspire them to share their faith, ideas, and unique gifts with the church and the world. Psalm 71 testifies that a foundation of faith established during childhood helps ensure lifelong faith and service. The patterns and lessons established during these formative years continue to bear fruit throughout a person’s life. By receiving the Pentecost Offering, you are nurturing the faith of those who are the church to come — children, youth, and young adults. We receive this special offering on Pentecost Sunday.
Peace and Global Witness Offering of the PC(USA): This Offering encourages the church to cast off anxiety and fear, discord and division, and embrace our reconciling God’s mission to those around the corner and around the world. Through this Offering, congregations are encouraged and equipped to find and address the anxiety and discord that is prevalent throughout this broken and sinful world. We receive this special offering on World Communion Sunday.
Christmas Joy Offering of the PC(USA): God has blessed the Church with incredible leadership in every time and place, but those leaders often need to be supported by their communities as well. This Offering addresses the support needed by some of our leaders, including supporting leadership development for communities of color, and providing support for Presbyterian church workers in their time of need. We receive this special offering on the Fourth Sunday of Advent.
