Raider Rack is a free store located at school, was opened October 2017. Teachers identify and refer students so they can shop for new clothing, shoes and coats at no cost thanks to the generosity of the London community. In it's first year, The Raider Rack was visited by 137 individual students PK-12th grades and over 1, 234 items went home with them. Seeing the student smile and have fun shopping was heartwarming and even more positive, was seeing the student come to school the next day wearing all their new things. What is needed? Sneakers and financial donations and our students love London City Schools Red Raider gear!

Offerings

A gift to the Pentecost Offering helps the church encourage, develop, and support its young people, and also address the needs of at-risk children.  40% of the PO can be retained by the individual congregations wanting to make an impact within their own community.  The remaining 60% is used to support ministries of the Presbyterian Mission Agency.

A gift to the P&GWO enables the church to promote the Peace of Christ by addressing systems of injustice across the world.  Individual congregations are encouraged to utilize up to 25% of this offering to connect with the global witness of Christ's peace.  Mid counsels retain 25% for ministries of peace and reconciliation.  The remaining 50% is used by the Presbyterian Mission Agency to advocate for peace and justice in cultures of violence, including our own, through collaborative projects of education and Christian witness.

Each year during the Advent and Christmas season, we turn our eyes to Bethlehem and celebrate the wondrous gift of Jesus Christ, our Savior.  By giving to the CJO, you honor this gift by providing assistance to current and retired church workers in their time of need and developing our future leaders at Presbyterian-related racial ethnic schools and colleges.

For over 70 years, One Great Hour of Sharing has provided Presbyterians a way to share God’s love with our neighbors in need around the world.  The three programs supported by One Great Hour of Sharing - Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, the Presbyterian Hunger Program, and Self-Development of People - all work in different ways to serve individuals and communities in need. From initial disaster response to ongoing community development, their work fits together to provide people with safety, sustenance, and hope.
