The four churchwide Special Offerings of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) play an important role in defining what it means to be a connectional church in the twenty-first century, bringing together the diversity of the PC(USA) to focus and take faith-based action on shared concerns. The Offerings offer opportunities for partnership, learning, and witness and profoundly affect the life of the church as a collective witness to Jesus Christ’s love for the whole church.
During each designated season, offering envelopes are available in the Sanctuary, Narthex, Gym, Church Office or you can Give Online.
One Great Hour of Sharing: Collected during Lent, a gift to One Great Hour of Sharing enables the church to share God’s love with our neighbors-in-need around the world by providing relief to those affected by natural disasters, provide food to the hungry, and helping to empower the poor and oppressed.
Pentecost Offering: A gift to the Pentecost Offering helps the church encourage, develop, and support its young people, and also address the needs of at-risk children.
Peace & Global Witness Offering: Collected on World Communion Sunday (typically October), a gift to the Peace & Global Witness Offering enables the church to promote the Peace of Christ by providing relief for those impacted by natural disasters and advocating for peace and justice across the world.
Christmas Joy Offering: Collected during Advent. Each year during the Advent and Christmas season, we turn our eyes to Bethlehem and celebrate the wondrous gift of Jesus Christ, our Savior. By giving to the Christmas Joy Offering, you honor this gift by providing resources to Beth-El Ministry, serving migrant farmworkers and the working poor right here in Hillsborough County.
