LCPC will be be collecting the Pentecost Offering later in May.
A gift to the Pentecost Offering helps the church encourage, develop, and support its young people, and also address the needs of at-risk children. 40% of the Pentecost offering will be given by LCPC for the Children and Family Services at the North Seattle
Family Resource Center, just as last year. The remaining 60% is used to support ministries of the Presbyterian Mission Agency.
This offering is appropriately received at Pentecost, just as the church is remembering the coming of the Holy Spirit with its wondrous animating activity in the life of the church. The children and youth who benefit from these gifts are themselves an animating presence in the church of today, whether members of Sunday schools or neighborhood children who receive hospitality and homework assistance.
- Our church serves the larger ministry of the PC(USA) by enabling programs for children at risk and supporting Young Adult Volunteers and Ministries with Youth, which includes Youth Triennium.
- Our church expresses its goodwill for children beyond its own neighborhood by joining a portion of its treasure along with others in a coherent Presbyterian voice for children.
- Our church retains 40% of the offering, which can serve as start-up funds for an Educate the Child program or sustaining funds for ongoing ministry.
- A gift to the Pentecost Offering helps the church encourage, develop, and support its young people, and also addresses the needs of at-risk children and their families. The Pentecost Offering will be dedicated at Lake City Presbyterian Church on June 4. Please consider giving to our future!!
