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.”

To order your free copy of the new Presbyterian Giving Catalog, visit www.pcusa.org/presbyteriangifts. An online version of the catalog will be available next month.

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.

  1. Connie, We love it when congregations take these projects on for something that is meaningful in their own congregations! Unfortunately, the ornaments and posters in the activation kit (farming kit, chickens, seeds and blank) are the only ones available at this time. I'll send you an email with some ideas for specifics. Thanks for supporting the Giving Catalog!

  2. Hi - Regarding the Giving Catalogue - we would like to do this with our church, Springfield Presbyterian Church for Christmas. 2 questions - could we do a "theme" - bedding for children? Can we get the "bulbs" for the trees with the items? Please let me know - Many Thanks - Connie
