This Sunday, Mother’s Day, we will conduct a special offering to benefit the Presbyterian Homes of Georgia Caring Hands Fund. Presbyterian Homes is a ministry devoted to God’s seniors in our care.

For 74 years, the Caring Hands Fund offers benevolent care for six Presbyterian Homes communities in Georgia with contributions directly supporting the care of residents who have outlived their financial resources. Our congregation joins Presbyterian churches statewide to annually support this vital ministry.

Learn more about Presbyterian Homes of Georgia and their vital ministry on their website, PHGAinc.org. Please prayerfully consider a gift to help support the Caring Hands Fund by clicking below to give online and selecting "Mother's Day" for the fund or by putting a check or envelope in the offering plate with "Mother's Day" or "Caring Hands" in the memo.
