You can also direct a gift to any program.  Missions, music, youth programs, OGHS and the Deacon's Fund are just a few of the many programs that can use your gifts.

More than a mere "rule book," the Book of Order is a collection of wisdom, a statement of our church's values, and reasonable operating principles for how the church of Jesus Christ will do its work in the world. The Presbyterian Book of Order is available for downloading here.
