Donations to FPCA
Christians are called to return to God a portion of what He has given us. We do so joyfully – not out of guilt or obligation. Gifts are made as tithes and offerings. The session and staff of FPCA wisely steward these gifts for the benefit and growth of God’s kingdom.
December’s Two Special Offerings
Our church supports two special offerings during the month of December. One is the Christmas Joy Offering which goes directly to Presbytery. The other goes to Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services (PCHAS). Offering envelopes can be found outside the sanctuary or chapel or designate on your check which offering you are supporting.
A Presbyterian tradition for almost seventy years, the Christmas Joy Offering is one of four special offerings supported by our church. Three of these are designated by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church to provide congregations direct ways of supporting specific causes that help those in need.
The receipts from the Joy Offering are distributed equally to the Board of Pensions for assistance programs and to the National Ministries of the General Assembly Council to support Presbyterian racial ethnic education. To view a brief video about the Christmas Joy Offering, visit http://specialofferings.pcusa.org/christmasjoy.
Our church continually supports PCHAS but especially at Christmas. During the evening Christmas Eve services at our church, the undesignated offerings will benefit the Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services (PCHAS). To find out more about PCHAS, visit http://www.pchas.org. You could also speak to Marge and Bob Dawson, PCHAS Ambassadors and volunteers, about this very worthy organization which supports many children and families in a variety of ways throughout Texas.
