Presbyterians have long given generously at Christmas to help those who’ve devoted their lives to the mission of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). On December 20, churches throughout the denomination will again receive the Christmas Joy Offering, providing a way to express gratitude for, and walk with, those who serve the Church.
The receipts of this Special Offering are shared equally by the Assistance Program of the Board of Pensions, which provides crucial assistance to PC(USA) church workers and their families in need, and Presbyterian-affiliated racial ethnic schools and colleges, which enable students to develop their gifts and find their calling.
Every congregation’s gifts to the Offering are critical to the future of these ministries, especially now when the need for funding is at its height. If you don’t already do so, please make the Christmas Joy Offering part of your Advent and Christmas tradition.

As always, you can give directly to the Assistance Program at pensions.org/giveassistance at any time during the year, but your gift is especially meaningful now, when the need for funding is at its height.
Thank you for your gifts!
