Christmas Joy Offering

The Christmas Joy Offering of the Presbyterian Church (USA) will be received Sunday, December 23. The offering will bring good news of great joy to the poor in circumstance or spirit. This special offering provides the opportunity for future leaders of the church, from all racial and ethnic backgrounds, to pursue and fulfill their dreams through Presbyterian-related education. The offering also helps families of active and retired church workers meet unexpected needs through the Assistance Program of the Board of Pensions.
