OTHER SPECIAL DENOMINATIONAL OFFERINGS
Christmas Joy Offering!
Each year, on the Sunday immediately before Christmas, we receive the Christmas Joy Offering, which supports the special needs of retired servants of our church and the students of our church-related racial-ethnic schools.
Souper Bowl of Caring
On Super Bowl Sunday, before we gather round our TVs with bowls heaped with snacks to watch the big game, we will receive the gifts of an even more important “Souper” Bowl of Caring. Please bring either canned goods and staple foods or a cash offering to church that morning to fill the “bowls” of hungry families right here in Bandon. All donations will be directly given to the Good Neighbors food pantry.
One Great Hour of Sharing
The One Great Hour of Sharing Offering is received in PC(USA) churches around the world during the Easter season. This annual offering supports the Presbyterian Hunger Program, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, and the Self-Development of People program–all important efforts of our denomination to serve those in need around the world and here in the US. Especially in light of so many recent natural disasters and man-made violence, please be in prayer about how God would have you support this critical offering for those in need, remembering that the next need might be ours!
