Pentecost Special Offering


On June 5, we will collect the Pentecost Special Offering in support of young people. Our financial support helps in guiding them as they grow in faith and helping them strengthen their unique gifts. 


The Presbyterian Mission Agency receives 60% of the offering to support the Young Volunteer Program which offers a faith-based year of service for young people aged 19-30 in the US and abroad; Ministries with Youth which supports the Presbyterian Youth Triennium; and children at risk in the areas of education and providing safe havens.  


The remaining 40% of the offering is retained by our congregation to be used in support of children at risk. This year, the Mission Committee voted, and the Session approved support of the Alabama Birth Project, supporting expectant mothers imprisoned in Alabama. As well, they are assisting in the process of re-entering life after prison – a perilous time for the women. Helping them navigate new relationships with their children, often regaining custody of their children, securing safe housing, a job, transportation, and finding mental health care to learn coping skills, help her build an after-prison life of behavior and skills that keep her from going back to prison, and from putting her children at further risk. 


Please give prayerful consideration to generously supporting the Pentecost Special Offering on June 5. Checks should be made payable to FPC, with "Pentecost" noted in the memo section. You may also give online to the Special Offerings Fund.

Exciting Changes!


Throughout the next several months you may notice quite a bit happening on the third and ground floors of the education building! Guided by our church's master plan, the Property Committee and representatives of Christian Education are working hard to renovate adult, youth, and children's classrooms. We hope to celebrate with an official unveiling in August as we begin the new program year. In the meantime: 




  • Thank you to all our groups who have relocated to new spaces for the summer!
  • If you are interested in helping with various tasks that will arise throughout the summer (painting, furniture cleaning/painting/refinishing, cleaning and assembling furniture) please contact Rev. Kathy Reed or Chris Sarkowski
  • Finally, you may financially support this project by making a gift to the Facility Improvement Fund at https://www.fpcauburn.org/give. (More details to come soon!)
