A Season of Pentecost

Now that One Great Hour of Sharing is in the books, it is time to turn our attention to the Pentecost Offering. Received 50 days after Easter, this offering signals the beginning of the Pentecost Season. The ministries supported by the Pentecost Offering teach young people to make faith, fellowship, and service part of their lives. Your gift to the Pentecost Offering unites young people in Christ and inspires them to share their faith, ideas, and unique gifts with the church and the world.

From My Youth You Have Taught Me - Psalm 71:17; Pentecost image with children
