Print publication available now, online version to come
September 25, 2013
The new Presbyterian Giving Catalog will provide Presbyterians with examples of how their generosity can help make an impact around the world. With examples like goats, chicks or new wells providing clean drinking water, the catalog will help Presbyterians make a direct connection with those on the receiving end of their gifts.
“We wanted to be more intentional in communicating how all gifts, regardless of size, are able to make a tangible impact in someone’s life,” said Sam Locke, director of Special Offerings. “We think this new catalog shines a bright light on how each gift truly does matter.”

Through the four churchwide Special Offerings — One Great Hour of Sharing, Pentecost, Peacemaking and Christmas Joy — Presbyterians help meet the needs of our sisters and brothers around the world.
The offerings fund everything from helping communities recover after a disaster to promoting peace and preventing bullying in classrooms.
The Special Offerings continue to be a strong catalyst for positive transformation in the lives of others and serve as a visible witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
