The Pentecost Offering
The Pentecost Offering will also be collected. It is one of several special offerings designated by the PC(USA) in which FPC participates. This offering is used for ministries for children at risk, ministries with youth, and young adult volunteers. A portion (40%) of this offering is retained for local use. Mission Committee has designated Presbyterian Children’s Home and Services’ Connect for Hope Camp as the recipient of these local funds this year.
