The Pentecost Offering is the newest and probably the least well known of the four special offerings of the PC(USA).  As its name implies, it is received on Pentecost Sunday, this year on June 4.  The Pentecost Offering was instituted specifically to benefit children, youth and young adults.   The offering is used to support several programs. 

 

Twenty-five percent supports Young Adult Volunteers (YAV).  The YAV program provides young adults with the opportunity to serve alongside communities worldwide while sharing the Word of God.  YAV serve for one year.  It is a transformational experience, and more than one third of YAV volunteers discover their call is to ordination and pastoral leadership.  Another twenty-five percent supports Ministries with Youth.  This ministry celebrates youth as the keepers of Godís world capable of serving as leaders and as agents of healing.  It sponsors Youth Triennium and other programs directed for youth.  Ten percent goes to the Presbyterian Mission Agency to support its programs that advocate for children at risk around the world, seeking quality education to nurture mind, body and spirit.  The remaining forty percent is retained for our use in Tustin for local programs and ministries.

 

This year as we approach the Day of Pentecost, Sunday, June 4, you will find inserts in your worship bulletin that provide more detail about specific uses of Pentecost Offering funds in the past.  Please read these and pray about your participation.  You will find Pentecost Offering envelopes in the pew racks for your use.  Please consider giving generously to this special offering.  Your dollars really do make a difference!
