Church giving during summer months

As we church treasurers know, churches experience ebbs and flows in giving and donations during the year, and the greatest ebb we see is usually during the summer months. Here is a link to a recent article from Church Law & Tax’s Church Finance Update newsletter offering “Five Tips to Increase Giving This Summer.”

2019 Special Offering Calendar

PEACE & GLOBAL WITNESS: Sept. 1 to Oct. 1

A gift to the Peace & Global Witness Offering enables the church to promote the Peace of Christ by addressing systems of conflict and injustice across the world. Individual congregations are encouraged to utilize up to 25% of this offering to connect with the global witness of Christ’s peace. Mid councils retain an additional 25% for ministries of peace and reconciliation. The remaining 50% is used by the Presbyterian Mission Agency to advocate for peace and justice in cultures of violence, including our own, through collaborative projects of education and Christian witness.

CHRISTMAS JOY: Dec. 1 to Dec. 22
NOTE: donations to these offerings are accepted at any time. The dates above are for times of special emphasis on the offerings. Click here for more information or to order resources, or call the PC(USA) Store at 800-533-4371.
