The Presbyterian Giving Catalog
As Presbyterians, we are people rooted in the grace of Jesus Christ. It is our gratitude for God’s grace that moves us to join in God’s mission to the world. Gifts to the Presbyterian Giving Catalog feed the hungry, comfort the broken-hearted and share our faith with young and old. In giving we expand our witness to God’s gracious and abundant work in the world.
Each gift pictured in the Presbyterian Giving Catalog exemplifies the work that is carried out by the Presbyterian Mission Agency. The purchase and distribution of animals, the building of wells to provide life-giving clean water to entire communities, and ministries to youth and young adults are among the many ways your gift is filling a need making an impact and providing hope here in the United States and around the globe.
