LPPC PER CAPITA
Every year LPPC sends the Presbytery of Santa Fe a “per
capita” contribution of $35 per member. Per Capita is crucial to the overall health of the PC (USA), because it
binds Presbyteries, Synods, and Congregations together in one church. This year our congregation is relying upon “those ties that bind” to help us transition from
pastor and welcome a new pastor, and is asking each church member to support
their per capita costs in addition to their normal annual pledge. In a minute for mission each Sunday in March we explained how the Santa Fe
Presbytery supports the needs of the local Churches and Congregations as well
as the larger Presbyterian church. The Stewardship Committee and Financial
Secretary will help keep track of member per capita giving, and we ask members
to make a note on their giving envelopes or checks of this per capita giving.
Las Placitas Presbyterian Church Per Capita Request
Even though we’re isolated in being sequestered at home, we’re still connected.
As members of LPPC, we’re connected to one another in our congregation, and
we’re connected to the broader Presbyterian family. Our Presbyterian connection
extends from the local congregation to the Presbytery, to the Synod, to the
national Presbyterian Church USA (the General Assembly). When we give our tithes and offerings, some of that money goes to the mission
of the wider church. An example is our recent Presbytery of Santa Fe hosting
online Holy Week services.
Part of our support to the Presbytery and wider church structure is the per
capita, an assessment based on the number of members in a congregation. It is
$35 per individual ($70 per household couple), which goes to help sponsor the
work of the Presbytery, Synod, and General Assembly. The Session of LPPC is
asking members to pay their per capita for this calendar year.
You may pay your per capita contribution two ways:
- by check, addressed to LPPC, P.O. Box 768. Placitas, NM 87043. Please put
Per Capita in the memo line of your check.
- or online. If you choose the online option, go to the website
lasplacitaschurch.org, click GIVE Choose
“Annual Operating Fund.” Enter a dollar amount, and then your name. Then click
on the turquoise “Submit Gift. After that, scroll down to the choice of credit
card or bank account number, fill in the boxes and submit.
