Pentecost Offering

Every year our church collects a special offering for Pentecost that goes to the Presbyterian Mission Agency to benefit children and youth. Children and youth are the heart of the annual Pentecost offering. A gift to the Pentecost Offering helps the church encourage, develop, and support its young people through Young Adult Volunteers and Ministries for Youth. Forty percent of the Pentecost offering can be retained by our congregation to make an impact in the lives of young people within our own community.

Souper Bowl Sunday

Every year on the Sunday of the NFL's Super Bowl, the Souper Bowl of Caring collects money to support local food banks. -more information-
