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.
It is always so exciting to see young people in our congregations take initiative for special projects!
Inspired by the opportunity to sponsor a garden well in the Presbyterian Giving Catalog, youth representatives from First Presbyterian Church in Mission, Texas have come up with a creative way to fund their gift - they have posted a "Wishing Well" in the narthex of their church, asking all who pass by to throw in their spare change with a prayer for those without access to clean water.

We love hearing stories of how your congregations are supporting and promoting Special Offerings projects. Send your stories and photos to Jordan and who knows - maybe yours will be the next group featured here!
