Denominational Offerings We receive three special denominational offerings
The Peacemaking Offering Received on World Communion Sunday, this offering
supports peacemaking ministries of congregations, presbyteries, synods
and the General Assembly. Twenty-five percent
of the offering is retained by congregations, 25% is used by synods
and presbyteries, and 50% is allocated to General Assembly ministries.
For a complete listing of how the General Assembly allocates its portion
of the offering, go to www.pcusa.org/peacemaking.
The Christmas Joy Offering Received on Christmas Eve, the Christmas Joy Offering is one of the
special offerings designated by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian
Church (U.S.A.) to provide congregations direct ways of supporting
specific causes that help those in need. This year the offering will be split in 3 ways: one-third going to The Center for Hope in Ambridge, one-third going to the PC(USA) assistance program for retired clergy and the remaining third will directly support TPCS's mission ministries.
The One Great Hour of Sharing Offering The One Great Hour of Sharing Offering is roughly divided into thirds.
Each of three programs, Self-
Development of People, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, and the Presbyterian
Hunger Program, receives 32% of the offering; the remaining 4% goes
to the Presbyterian Hunger Program for its work on homelessness and
affordable housing. We will receive the One Great Hour of Sharing Offering
