Each year on Pentecost Sunday, Thomas Presbyterian Church celebrates the gift of the Holy Spirit and the birthday of the Church. The Holy Spirit remains with us, connecting us with the church of the past, continuing to inspire the church of today, and pointing us to the church of the future. Each year, this celebration is marked by receiving the Pentecost Offering which nurtures the faith of those who are the church to come --- children, youth, and young adults.

Psalm 71 testifies that a foundation of faith established during childhood helps ensure lifelong faith and service. The patterns and lessons established during these formative years continue to bear fruit throughout a person’s life. By giving to the Pentecost Offering, Thomas Presbyterian Church participates in helping its children, youth, and young adults grow up to proclaim with the Psalmist, “O God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds.”

40%of donated funds remain in congregations to initiate or support programs for young people. Thomas Presbyterian church designates its 40% to support Vacation Bible School.
