The Christmas Joy Offering has been a cherished Presbyterian tradition since the 1930s. The Offering distributes gifts equally to the Assistance Program of the Board of Pensions and to Presbyterian-related schools and colleges equipping communities of color. The Assistance Program provides critical financial support to church workers and their families. Presbyterian-related schools and colleges provide education and leadership development while nurturing racial and ethnic heritage. This has been a Presbyterian commitment for nearly 140 years.

Generosity – In a word, that’s what we aim to cultivate.  God is greatly generous and we want to exhibit that quality, too.

Have you ever gone to a funeral where they talked about how much the dead person owned?  Probably they talked about how much that person shared.  We all recognize sharing as a better measure of worth.

At GPC, we share with neighbors around the community and also around the world.  Every week, we give hands-on opportunities to practice living more like Jesus.

We offer practical and Biblical teaching on such matters as:

  • Managing personal finance God’s way
  • Getting out of debt
  • Saving and investing
  • Health care costs in retirement
  • Wills, bequests, and estate planning
  • Tax-advantaged giving
  • Talking with family members about money
  • Separating needs from wants
It’s impossible to follow Jesus and not be generous!  We’re not perfect, but we’re committed to growing.

Remember, giving doesn’t always need to involve money. 
Any gift to GPC is an eternal investment in our local and global communities!
