November News Updates

Give With a Thankful Heart

Twice each year at Thanksgiving and at Easter, the ARP Church collects a special offering to support some of the ministries of our denomination.  The Thanksgiving Season Special Offering is for the benefit of:

  • Christmas Benevolent Fund – A longstanding ministry of the ARP Church, this fund provides monetary gifts to retired ARP ministers and widows of retired ministers.
  • Outreach North America – This agency of our denomination assists in the planting of new ARP churches and the revitalization of existing congregations.
  • Erskine Theological Seminary – As our church’s only institution of theological education, the seminary equips men and women for Gospel service through a variety of master and doctoral level programs of study.
  • The American Bible Society – This organization strives to make Bibles available to people
    throughout the world.

We ask that each congregation provide an opportunity for your congregation to participate in this special offering. The bulletin inserts were mailed to your church.

While no specific date is set for the collection of the offering, we ask that proceeds be sent in by December 31, 2020 so that distributions may be made in a timely manner. You also have the opportunity to designate how you want your gift divided among these ministries. Please return the Special Thanksgiving Offering Report to the ARP Center with your church’s contribution or you may give online by clicking here.

Click here for the nomination worksheet for 2021. Prayerfully consider someone in your congregation that may fill in for empty positions.

Each recommendation must include the individual’s name and contact information, position for which he or she is being recommended, and complete information regarding the individual’s Christian commitment, qualifications, and willingness to serve if nominated. Please adequately introduce your nominee to our Committee so that we might understand the person’s qualifications for service and the expected contributions he or she might make to the board or committee.
