Covenant Presbyterian Church

Open to wherever God,

in Christ, leads us,

we seek to live out our faith in community

by offering hope

and standing together for justice.

 

Pentecost offering for youth will be collected June 5-June 19

“I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord…to give you a future with hope” –Jeremiah 29:11

At Pentecost, we celebrate that God offers more than we can plan. “Our gifts to the Pentecost Offering connect with God’s hope and the future by supporting ministries with children, youth and young adults by building a life of faith. Through the Young Adult Volunteer program; Presbyterian Youth and Triennium office; the Educate a Child, Transform the World initiative; as well as local programs here in East County, we join in ministries that connect young people with one another and with caring communities helping them shape a life and a future beyond even the one we could plan.”

At the national level, 25% of this offering goes to Young Adult Volunteers. This international program offers a year of service for people ages 19 to 30. Through transformative Christian service, they become leaders helping shape our future.

The national Ministries with Youth also receives 25% of the offering. Their biggest focus is the Presbyterian Youth Triennnium. Every three years, over 3,000 high school youth, their leaders and young adults gather to learn about and celebrate faith. It’s a transforming experience for many teenagers.

Ten percent of the national offering is devoted to children at risk, both trying to improve education and to provide safe havens for those who are often not noticed by society. The national initiative is called Educate a Child, Transform the World.

And 40% of the offering stays with Covenant, where the mission committee identifies programs locally that serve children at risk. Over the years, our share of the Pentecost offering has donated money to Backpack Buddies, providing weekend and summer food for students who depend on school lunches. We’ve given to the Boys and Girls Club, now located off 181st and Stark. We’ve helped fund Vacation Bible School for our local community. We’ve used the money and additional donations to make boxes of supplies for kids aging out of the foster system. We’ve donated funds and volunteered with Food for Families, to help provide food pantry service during the summer. We’ve given funds to the Alba Initiative and offered our church as a Safe Space for youth 9 to 17, combating homelessness, runaways, and child abuse. Which will we pick this year? Stay tuned, the mission committee is scheduled to meet and decide soon.

We will collect the special Pentecost offering from June 5, the Sunday of Pentecost, through June 19, when we celebrate both Father’s Day and Juneteenth. If you are attending church in person and want to donate cash, use a pew envelope and write “Pentecost” on the outside. If you donate by check, make sure to put “Pentecost” in the note line. You can also donate online, by going to our website, www.covenantgresham.org, and clicking on the “donate” button. Again, make sure you use the “note” box to type in “Pentecost.”
