At the November 2017 Presbytery Meeting the Budget Committee presented the 2018 Budget, which was approved. This budget is based on an income of $206,000. In order to generate this amount, the Business Committee and Executive Council recommended an increase, from the $12.50 to $14.50 in the Per Member Asking (PMA). This increase will take effect January 2018.
Payments for “per member asking” should be made to “Presbytery of the Alleghenies” and mailed to:
Mr. Neil Zampella
Presbytery of the Alleghenies
703 South Pittsburgh Street
Connellsville, PA 15425-4021
Please give prayerful consideration to your financial support.
The EPC World Outreach missions agency has launched an initiative called Engage 2025. The idea is that each of the EPC presbyteries engage in an unreached Muslim people group – establishing the church and a strong Christian influence in each of the areas by the year 2025. The Presbytery of the Alleghenies has begun already, focusing on adopting two villages in the northern region of Sierra Leone – Fintonia and Rokassa.
