    Give to Christmas Joy Offering

    As we gather together on Christmas Eve to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, we have the opportunity to make a gift to the Christmas Joy Offering. 

    Fifty percent of undesignated receipts to the Christmas Joy Offering are distributed to the Board of Pensions for assistance programs that provide support to retired and active church workers and their spouses and families. The other fifty percent supports Presbyterian-related racial ethnic schools and colleges through the Racial Ethnic and Women’s Ministries of the Presbyterian Mission Agency.

  • Noisy Offering

    "Noisy Offering" is collected the last Sunday of the month separate from our regular offering.  The youth and children of the church go into the congregation with a can to collect loose change.  When they have collected all the change, they return to the front of the church and empty their cans into a large metal pan.  This makes a very loud and joyous noise!  Currently the Noisy Offering money is helping support  The Nolan County Ministerial Alliance.

  • Reverse Offering

    Collections for the Nolan County Food Pantry are collected through Reverse Offering. Items are provided from the collection plate on the first Sunday of each month. Put in your offering and take out a slip of paper with item needed. Bring your items the next Sunday and place in the grocery basket at the entrance of the church or there is basket in the hallway by the church offices. Food, personal hygiene, gently worn clothes and shoes, or cash donations are always appreciated anytime through out the month. The donations are greatly appreciated.
