Keep up with the exciting things happening through your gifts to the Presbyterian Church (USA) Special Offerings.

Before we send you on your way with a link to the new page, we want to thank those of you who have reached out to us regarding your frustrations with the old page, because listening to your voices makes us better at what we do.
