Per capita is an amount of money "per member" that our congregation pays to our larger Presbyterian Church. This money is part of the glue that holds Presbyterians together. It is the money that enables us to work with other Presbyterian churches in our presbytery and across the country. It is also money that allows us to work with other churches to further the mission of Jesus Christ around the world.
The Per capita assessment applies to all adult members of the church, which includes high school students that have completed the confirmation process.
The per capita assessment for 2017 is $36.11
