PW Thank Offering: This Sunday we welcome you to donate to the PW Thank Offering during morning worship. As a result of generous giving such as yours last year, 16 projects across the globe received grants for various needs including clean food and water, health, shelter, and educational opportunities. In recent years, recipients in our Synod have included the “Food for Thought” garden at the University of the Ozarks, and Presbyterian Inc. in Little Rock which improves accessibility for residential care. For a complete list of recipients, please click here.
