Ways We Give
Each year OPPC contributes to Presbyterian Church USA offerings:
ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING: Since 1949, One Great Hour of Sharing has provided Presbyterians the opportunity to join with millions of other Christians to share God's love with those in need. Gifts help restore hope to those affected by natural disasters through Presbyterian Disaster Association (PDA), provide food to the hungry and helping empower the poor and oppressed. To learn more, visit presbyterianmission.org/oghs.
PENTECOST OFFERING: The Pentecost offering targets children at risk, youth and young adults. This offering provides the opportunity to encourage, develop, and support young people, as well as provide assistance to at-risk children. Our congregation designates 40% of this offering organizations in our community. For more information visit presbyterianmission.org/pentecost.
PEACE AND GLOBAL WITNESS OFFERING: As Christians, we are called to promote peace within our families, our communities and our world. The Peace and Global Witness Offering is received on World Communion Sunday as we join with Christians around the world for unity and peace. 25% of this offering is dedicated to sustain local peacemaking ministries.
