SPECIAL OFFERING: PENTECOST
Today is Pentecost Sunday, and that means it is time to take up the annual Pentecost Offering. Due to an oversight by the church office, the special red envelopes didn’t make it into the pew racks today, but they will be there next week.
As you may recall, this special offering is something we collect one time a year, and the purpose of the offering is to benefit at-risk children, youth, and young adults. A portion of the offering is sent to PCUSA to be used for their national programs, but 40% of the money stays here, at Green Hill, to benefit youth in our area. Traditionally this money is used at the end of the summer to help needy families purchase school supplies for their children.
If you feel called to contribute to this offering, you can use one of the red envelopes found in the pew racks, or, you can simply write the word “Pentecost” on the memo line of your check. We will accept donations to this offering through the month of June. Thank you to everyone for supporting this very worthy mission of our church.
