The Christmas Joy Offering
       Three times during the year we receive a special offering: One Great Hour of Sharing; the Peace Offering; and the Christmas Joy Offering.
        For over seventy years, Presbyterians have given generously at Christmas to support the unmet needs of families who have devoted their lives to the mission of the Presbyterian Church USA. Today this Offering is shared equally by the Assistance Program of the Board of Pensions, which provides critical assistance to Presbyterian Church workers and their families, and, secondly, to Presbyterian-affiliated racial ethnic schools and colleges, which enable students to develop their gifts and find their calling.
      There will be special envelopes available in the pews this Sunday and on Christmas Eve. Sunday’s bulletin will also contain an insert on individuals who have been helped by this Offering.

          A thank you to the Deacons for preparing Christmas stockings filled with appropriate items. These will be distributed to residents at the Nursing Home.
