Gift Card Offering
For the 2024 PW Churchwide Gathering, attendees are invited to participate in a gift card offering. Gathering attendees may drop off gift cards for Lowe’s, Amazon, Target or Walmart at Gathering registration, which then will be given to Bethel Hills and Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services. Bethel Hills is a residential community in Missouri that provides supportive housing, social and educational opportunities for adults with and without developmental disabilities. Operating in Texas, Missouri and Louisiana, Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services offers programming that helps vulnerable children, strengthens families and builds communities.
