The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) reflects God’s perfect gift to us, through the Christmas Joy Offering. Even as we support our current and former church leaders, God is calling new leaders for our Church and world, through the ministry of Presbyterian-related schools and colleges equipping communities of color — offering students the means for a brighter future and enhanced opportunities to use their talents and skills to serve God, the Church and the world for years to come.
For those of us gathered together in Advent expectation, we know that the only perfect gift ever given was the one we received in Jesus Christ — a perfect gift from a gracious God. Our gifts reflect our generous God. Our gifts support leaders in our Church and world — past, present and future.
