Offering/Donations

Our Money At Work

 
All money given to FPCA is used to support the ministry, missions, staff, facility and caring programs of FPCA.  Each year FPCA collects monetary pledges to support the work of the church at large.  A group of elected Elders, called the Session, vote on an annual budget that supports the the daily operating expenses of a busy Austin church. 
 
Gifts to FPCA go beyond the walls of our building and reach into the lives of children and adults in the Austin community, our homeless community, and stretching across borders and continents to help with disaster relief, hunger, and poverty in far away nations. Join the work of FPCA in an act of generous love by making a pledge to support its ministry.

First Sunday Loose Offering
 
At the beginning of the year, FPCA decides upon a list of agencies and organizations we wish to donate to, each matched with a month.  On the First Sunday on every month, any loose dollar bills and coins gathered during Offering at worship will be given to the agency of the month.  The list of agencies for this year are:
 
January – Cold Weather Shelter (hosted downtown by Central Presbyterian Church)
February – Crop Walk
June – Pastors' Good Samaritan Fund (for those in need who come to our door and meet with a Pastor)
August –  An FPCA Youth-chosen mission agency
September – Disaster Relief
