Keep up with the exciting things happening through your gifts to the Presbyterian Church (USA) Special Offerings. We'll be posting about a wide range of topics, including: how your dollars are used around the world, promotion strategies for use in your local congregations, as well as stories about how Presbyterians are using Special Offerings gifts to make an impact in their own communities.
You’ve heard of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, but what about Giving Tuesday? As part of a global charitable giving effort, we’re inviting folks to take a breather from the spending frenzy and give back on Tuesday, December 2. Give to your congregation, presbytery, Special Offerings or a variety of national and international mission causes. Imagine the collective impact of 1.8 million Presbyterians working together on a single day to make a difference! Here’s how you can help us promote and support Giving Tuesday:
We'd love to see what you are doing for #GivingTuesday. Send your photos and links to firstname.lastname@example.org!
"Mission is our expression of faith in being sent to the world to share the Good News of the Gospel and in sharing work and witness. Mission is our calling; Mission is working together for the benefit of others. Mission is active, intentional, focused, work alongside partnership. We are all called to serve. Sent in service."
This weekend was a great opportunity for me to see our Activation Kit in action - it really works! Has your congregation considered hosting an Alternative Giving Fair, or setting up a Tree of Hope in your narthex or fellowship hall? Send us an email with any questions, refill requests, or better yet - pictures from your event!
This year, the Presbyterian Mission Agency is partnering with the Presbyterian Foundation to join the #GivingTuesday movement.
"That moment for me was a glimpse into God’s provision and abundance in this world, in this church and in my life."
