How your Pentecost Offering gift is used

The following links list projects supported by each of the three programs that receive Offering funds. Please note that these projects are not identical to those that might be funded in the future, as funding decisions are made each year by committees of elected representatives. While some of the specific grants will change, the overall profile of the grants will change relatively little from one year to the next.
