The Church exists for Mission as fire exists for burning. Throughout the year, First Presbyterian Church participates in a number of Denominationally sponsored Special Offerings that are designed to address critical and often on-going needs of the world around us.
These offerings, that regularly occur, are the One Great Hour of Sharing, the Pentecost Offering, Peacemaking, The Thank Offering, Christmas Joy and a separate local Christmas Offering and Blanket Sunday.
Each one is designed to meet specific needs of people locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. In addition there are, from time to time, requests for assistance resulting from disasters which seem to be occurring with unnerving and increasing frequency. What follows is a description of those special offerings and you can help any time you like to any one or all of them as the Spirit moves you.
