PCWS’ annual budget supports organizations with a global perspective and  those serving the local community.  A sample of the organizations we currently or have supported includes:

¨ Concern America

¨ Opportunity International

¨ Interfaith Community Partners

¨ Amka Afrika

¨ The LeaderShop

In addition to budgeted support for mission, the national Presbyterian Church, PC (USA), sponsors four denominational special offerings each year.  Each covers a distinct mission:

  • One Great Hour of Sharing
  • Pentecost Offering
  • Peacemaking Offering
  • Christmas Joy Offering

Each Sunday since 1975 the loose coins in the offering plate are collected to benefit the Pine Avenue Food Pantry and the Greater Chicago Food Depository.

Aluminum, collected for recycling, is sold and the funds received used toward helping our sister church, Nueva Paz, in Cuba with their ministry.
