We will also collect the Pentecost offering Sunday. Congregations keep 40 percent of gifts for community programs that benefit children, youth and young adults. The Presbyterian Mission Agency divides the remaining 60 percent between ministries with youth and young adults (50 percent) and child advocacy (10 percent).
