The ARP Church collects a special offering at Thanksgiving to support specific ministries of our denomination.
The Thanksgiving Offering is for the benefit of: Christmas Benevolent Fund, Outreach North America, Erskine Theological Seminary and The American Bible Society.
We are called to give sacrificially (over and above our tithe). So, these offerings provide an avenue for us to worship through giving and to support ministries of the ARP Church. To read more about this offering, see page 12 of the November/December ARP Magazine.
Happy Reformation Day!
