Each year, a “per capita” amount is gathered by Presbyterian Church (USA) congregations based on membership numbers. The amount for 2019 is $35.50 for each member. These funds support the work of the Church at the local, national, and regional levels. Why is this important for us to know? If each individual member doesn’t contribute his or her per capita, our church ends up covering it out of the general budget. The effect of that ripples into the budget for the year. So, please, write your check and add it to the plate on Sunday, or mail it directly to the church while you’re thinking about it. You can mark the check for Per Capita or put it in the Per Capita envelope included in the box of pledge envelopes.
