Christmas Joy Offering

 

Every year, society expects us to celebrate the holiday season even bigger and better than years before.  This year, coming together to reclaim Advent and Christmas can be both humbling and fulfilling.  As we excitedly await the birth of Christ, itís important to remember the reason for the season: the newborn Servant of All.

 

With Christ at the center this holiday season, we can follow in his example of servant leadership by serving our brothers and sisters in faith.  Through the Christmas Joy Offering, we are able to support those in our community and give them the gift of hope.

 

Through the Assistance Program of the Board of Pensions, the Christmas Joy Offering assists church workers and their families during times of need, giving back to those who have spent their lives in the service of the church.  The program provides grants for housing supplements, income assistance, and pastoral vocational leadership needs.

 

The Christmas Joy Offering also supports the education and development of our future leaders at Presbyterian-related racial ethnic schools and colleges.  These schools are dedicated to nurturing opportunity and creating environments where diverse students can succeed from a foundation of Christian values.  The Offering benefits Menaul School and Presbyterian Pan American School, two secondary schools that ready students for a path of higher learning, as well as Stillman College, where graduates are prepared for lives of leadership and service.

 

When you give to the Christmas Joy Offering, you help sustain these promises and uplift our brothers and sisters in Christ by reducing their burdens and opening new paths of opportunity.  We will receive the Christmas Joy Offering on Sunday, December 18, and at both Christmas Eve services.  Please give generously!
