Pentecost Offering - May 27

The Pentecost Offering is received on the day of  Pentecost. It provides a direct way to meet the
needs of children at risk, youth, and young adults. Congregations keep 40 percent of the offering to
support ministry with children at risk in their communities.

The General Assembly’s portion (60 percent) provides leadership development opportunities for Presbyterian youth and young adults and supports children-at-risk programs at the national level. Presbyterians of all ages have raised over $7 million since 1998 for these ministries that benefit younger members of God’s family.
