Last year the Presbyterian Joy Offering provided much-needed assistance to two important groups, 500 retired ministers and church workers in need, and numerous students at three minority institutions: Menaul School (Albuquerque, NM), Presbyterian Pan American School (Kingsville, TX), Stillman College (Tuscaloosa, AL). 

Be prepared to give this Sunday to support past and future church leaders who are not faring as well as most of us  Or, give today at blacksburg.org/give. Click the link and choose "Christmas Joy Offering" under giving type.  We will report back to you our BPC Joy Gift total, hopefully with joy!
