Help youth begin life with a solid foundation of faith. Psalm 71 testifies that a foundation of faith established during childhood helps ensure lifelong faith and service. The patterns and lessons established during these formative years continue to bear fruit throughout a person’s life. By contributing to the Pentecost Offering, you are nurturing the faith of those who are the church to come — children, youth, and young adults.
The PC(USA) Pentecost Offering encourages, develops, and supports its young people, and also addresses the needs of at risk children.
40% of the Pentecost Offering will be used locally to impact the lives of young people in our community. 60% will be used to support ministries of the Presbyterian Mission Agency for young adult volunteers, ministries for youth, and children at risk.
Your donations make a difference! In 2019, this offering provided over $7000 to help youth from our Presbytery attend the PC(USA) Youth Triennium and last year the local portion was given to Covenant House to support their ministry of providing compassionate, sustainable services and shelter to homeless or at-risk youth in Alaska.
