2019 Birthday Offering Recipients
First Presbyterian Church of Michigan City
This year, 10% of the funds given to the Birthday Offering will be given to our own congregation.  This church hosts a women's shelter on Sundays, a men's shelter on Mondays and Wednesdays, and a soup kitchen on Saturdays.  In addition, our Mission Committee gives to local and global ministries that assist individuals to live fuller and more abundant lives.
Disaster Response Team
Presbytery of Charlotte, Charlotte, North Carolina
The Disaster Response Team of the Presbytery of Charlotte will expand its ministry to support people affected by human-made or natural disasters. PW’s grant will help provide a warehouse, parking lot and security fencing. This new space will hold household goods, food, hygiene, and school kits, and clean-up buckets, and will house mobile shower units and disaster recovery trailers.
Effingham Child Development Center
Inclusive Playground, Effingham, Illinois
In a child’s early years inclusive play environments set the tone for successful future relationships. The Effingham Child Development Center serves children and families of differing abilities and is paving the way for all kids to learn and play together. The Birthday Offering will improve the center’s playground by helping to provide a protective play surface and all-inclusive play equipment.
Presbyterian Homes and Services of Kentucky, Inc.
Good Shepherd Community Nursing Center, Phelps, Kentucky
Presbyterian Homes and Services of Kentucky cares for people who are sick, poor, lonely or vulnerable due to infirmities of age and poor health. This project will improve the quality of life and safety for nursing center residents in the Appalachian region of Eastern Kentucky. PW’s grant will help provide new wardrobes, bedside cabinets, over-bed tables, nursing beds, mattresses and lift recliners.
Wings of Refuge
Restoration Home, Iowa Falls, Iowa
Wings of Refuge provides a safe and healing space for women victimized by human trafficking. Without safety and shelter, there is little healing. PW’s Birthday Offering grant will help fund a larger long-term safe home where many more women will find restoration, identity, community, opportunity and hope, and transition into independent living.

 

We ask that you give as you have been blessed, and generously as led by the Holy Spirit.  Presbyterian Women’s commitment to improving the lives of others has not changed.  Bring your envelope to the church on Sunday, March 11th, or mail it to the church.
