Paying Per Capita

As members of the Presbyterian Church, we understand "polity," the form of government that unites us across our own presbytery of Giddings-Lovejoy and to the Office of General Assembly. But who is responsible to pay for the services of the larger church which keeps us connected and working together for the greater good? The answer is each and every member of the Presbyterian Church USA. "In a connected church such as ours, per capita is the responsible way of sharing costs that equitably belong to the whole Presbyterian community," former Stated Clerk Gradye Parsons said.

The annual contribution of $35.00 per member is the primary source to fund the work of the Giddings-Lovejoy Presbytery that serves the churches in its care, the national Office of General Assembly that brings us together to discern the Spirit's leading, the Office of Stated Clerk that provides leadership for Presbyterians nationwide and the Presbyterian Mission Agency that oversees the work of the Presbyterian church for others here and around the world.

If every member contributes to the per capita fund, WGPC would reduce its operating cost by over $21,770 and that would allow more funds to do God's work here.

Your donation helps keep us connected for the good of the whole body, here and around the world. It is a pledge we make as Presbyterians to the greater church.
