Special Offerings

Lenten and Easter Offering

This years Lenten and Easter Offerings will again be divided between the five RCA colleges and seminaries to support scholarship opportunities at these RCA institutions.  Additionally, we will continue our on-going support of the Migrant Education Outreach Program coordinated by the Oswego County BOCES.

Each year our Easter offering goes to benefit Albany Synod Ministries.  The overall goal of the Synod Ministries is to promote healing and nurture in classes and congregations throughout the synod, so that they may be empowered to live out faithful and fruitful missions in God’s world. These funds support a spectrum of activities that include providing for church revitalization, clergy support, leadership development, clergy networking, development of clergy leadership, discipleship resourcing, and resourcing for social witness.
