This annual celebration of God’s blessings in our lives is an opportunity to demonstrate our appreciation by sharing those blessings with others. Over the past twenty-four years, the Thank Offering has become a hallmark of our group, raising over $24 million to fund nearly 2,000 national and international project grants. The worship service of thanksgiving will be followed by high tea.
One of the hallmarks of Presbyterian Women (PW) is our commitment to giving locally and across the US and world. Locally, we give of our time as well as money; and we participate in two major giving events each year – one being the fall Thank Offering.
To celebrate this offering, we have a program and “high” tea using special tea cup that have been donated over the years by PW women. Grant requests come from a variety of sources including PC(USA) governing bodies, health agencies, overseas churches, and educational institutions. Thank Offering grants range from $5,000 to $50,000 which fund projects such as agricultural development, child and elderly care, employment training, homelessness, literacy, and women’s concerns. At least 40 percent of the funds go to support health ministries.
Presbyterian Women Thank Offering 2016 will change lives. Come be a part of it!
