To: Pastors and Sessions of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church
Dear Fathers and Brothers:
The theme of the 2019 Thank Offering for the Worldwide Outreach ministries of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church is “Rescue the Perishing” from Psalm 126. The goal this year is to raise $1,200,000 through the Thank Offering for the ministries of Foreign Missions, Home Missions, and Christian Education.
Giving is currently $57,000 below where it should be at this point in 2019. A generous Thank Offering is essential for the Committee to go forward with their planned ministries in 2020. Please promote the Thank Offering through prayer, sermons, and Sunday School lessons on Psalm 126, and special events such as a Thank Offering banquet or Thanksgiving Day service.
You will be receiving one or more Thank Offering posters, three sets of bulletin inserts, and remittance envelopes sent out by the staff at the OPC Administrative Building. We suggest that the bulletin inserts be distributed on the three Lord’s Days prior to the collection of the Thank Offering. For example, if your collection is planned for Sunday, November 24, begin the distribution of the bulletin inserts on the Lord’s Day of November 3. The remittance envelopes should be included with the third bulletin insert. If you have not received the materials by Friday, October 11, please contact Annelisa Studley (phone 215-935-1024) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank you for your faithful support of the ministries of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
