Per Capita is a fundamental way in which all of the nearly 10,000 congregations and mid councils of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) connect, participate and share in the work of the wider church. Per capita is the primary source of funding for the Office of the General Assembly, and is how Presbyterians mutually and equitably share the costs of coming together to discern the Spirit’s leading for the future.

: It is how Presbyterians are trained to become better ruling elders, teaching elders and deacons, and ministers.

: It is how Presbyterians are helped to discern God’s call in their lives.

: It is how Presbyterians participate in the life of the wider church by serving on General Assembly committees and commissions, regardless of distance or financial resources.

: It is how Presbyterians participate in the life of the Church universal as we commit ourselves to work and live in fellowship with “all persons in every nation” (Book of Order, G-4.0101)

All Presbyterians are called to take part in the ecclesiastical and administrative work shared by the whole church though per capita giving. The amount for 2024 is $38 per member.

Please read the article below for one pastor's thoughtful look at a reason to give the per capita amount.

A Message from Our Presbytery Co-Leaders

Presbytery Friends,

In advance of our Spring Stated Meeting of the Presbytery, which is coming up on the evening of Tuesday, February 20th (via Zoom), we will host an information session on an overture which is coming from the Session of Wyoming Presbyterian Church in Millburn. This Overture is asking the PC(USA) to encourage an amendment to the United States Constitution to abolish the exception to the 13th Amendment which currently permits people who have committed a crime to be enslaved. Slavery of any type remains contrary to Christian understandings of justice, and in recent years, the General Assembly has adopted many statements reaffirming that. This overture seeks specifically to support efforts currently underway in the House and the Senate to correct this historic wrong. The overture can be found here, along with documents explaining the advocacy efforts already underway and the bills currently in Congress: 13th Amendment Overture to GA2024. This Zoom will take place on Monday, February 12th at 7:30 pm.

Thank you to those who have already submitted your statistics. Churches have until February 15th to submit them. As the deadline approaches, the system tends to get slower because more folks are logged in, so please enter your data as soon as possible. If you need help, let me know and I’ll help you get it done. I am hopeful for 100% completion this year. 

Last week, I shared an article from the Outlook. This week I’d like to share with you all, a blog post from Jan Edmiston, Co-Moderator of the 222nd General Assembly and Presbytery Leader in Charlotte. Her post this week especially resonated with me, but I commend her blog in general… she has seen a lot and offers wisdom. Here is a link to this week's installment Owning It: “I’m Not Letting You Change the Church I Love.”

The church office is looking for a few volunteers of any age to take photos of Prospect people in action. Pictures of worship services (discretely of course), fellowship time, regular events or special occasions. Pictures will be used on social media, in worship, in emails and on our current and new website. If anyone can help with this, please contact Faye in the church office. A lot of fancy equipment is not needed, a phone with a camera and a steady hand would be great.
