Christmas Joy Offering - Sunday, December 23

Presbyterians can respond to that love at Christmas by giving generously to the Christmas Joy Offering. As we celebrate Jesus’ love in our lives this Christmas, our gifts bear joyful witness to the power of that boundless love that changes lives.

What Is the Christmas Joy Offering?

One way in which the PC(USA) has joined together and shared the good news of great joy is through the Christmas Joy Offering. One half of the Offering supports Presbyterian-related racial ethnic schools and colleges. Through this support, these schools offer an opportunity to young adults to advance their education and escape the cycle of poverty and prejudice. The Assistance Program of the Board of Pensions receives the other half of the Offering and uses it to assist pastors, missionaries, and church workers in special need. Your gifts enable the Assistance Program to support active and retired church workers who have unexpected needs they cannot meet..
