Our women’s group (called the Velma Hayes Circle) is participating in collecting the 2019 Thank Offering of Presbyterian Women. This offering, which goes back to 1888, urges each woman to give over and above her usual contribution as a “thank offering to her Lord”.
Tens of millions of dollars have been raised over the years by Presbyterian women through this offering. Eighteen grant recipients are chosen each year to be blessed with the money raised. This year’s recipients will use their grants to provide the tangible love of Christ through: food for the hungry, shelter for those in need, healing for patients at home and abroad, and other such causes.
More information about this Thank Offering can be found at this link https://www.presbyterianwomen.org/…/support…/thank-offering/. Donations are accepted at the link, as well, or through our APC online donation site at this link https://bit.ly/2XyWgZX.
