Pentecost Offering in May to Support Youth Montreat Trip

The Pentecost Offering unites us in a church-wide effort to support young people and inspire them to share their faith, ideas, and unique gifts with the church and the world. This year the Faith Formation Commission has earmarked the local funds to help support out youth trip to Montreat.

Montreat Youth Conference affirms youth in their calling to be and to shape the church of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to help youth come to know and believe that they are the beloved of God and to be a place where authenticity, community, connection, and God’s truth thrive. We seek to be an inclusive space where each voice can be heard and where each heart can be molded; where change is invited, challenge is expected, and where all are embraced.

This summer, we will build an accepting community of unconditional love where every story matters. Through engaging worship, lively music, and practices of gratitude and fun, we will offer youth different opportunities to cultivate their spiritual faith journeys and practice sabbath. We will provide a secure space that is loving, holy, and authentic so that we may glorify God in all that we do, inspiring and equipping a lifetime of faith.

Youth leave Montreat knowing that:

Their faith matters.
They are loved as they are.
They are part of a community of faith.

You can contribute using your offering envelope for the offering, marking your check “Pentecost Offering,” or you can give online.


40% of the offering stays with our congregation to support local ministries with children, youth, and young adults.

The remaining 60% is remitted to the Presbyterian Mission Agency.
