47% (or 28 out of 59) churches in Foothills Presbytery gave last year.
The Christmas Joy Offering is traditionally received during the Advent Season. However, you can help sustain the important PC(USA) ministries and programs that are supported by the Christmas Joy Offering by making an online gift at any time throughout the year. Checks can be mailed care of Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to P.O. Box 643700; Pittsburgh, PA 15264-3700.
Our gifts support leaders in our Church and in the world — past, present and future. Half of the Christmas Joy Offering goes to the Assistance Program of the Board of Pensions to help current and past church workers and their
families who are in financial need. The other half also aids future church and society leaders who study in Presbyterian-related schools and colleges equipping communities of color.
