Christmas Joy Offering and Lunch

Christmas Joy
In this Advent season we can more readily recognize God's image in all humankind.This compels us to reach out with charity, justice, and grace to those in need.

On Sunday, December 19, 2010 Mount Hermon will observe our annual Christmas Joy Offering and lunch.This offering has been a tradition for 70 years and is one of four special offerings designated by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA).

It specifically benefits former church workers (ministers, missionaires, church workers, and their families) and supports students at schools and colleges to develop themselves as church and societal leaders.The knowledge of the support offered from the church sustains these  groups in their time of need and offers us the spiritual benefit of knowing we are giving in a meaningful way.
