Thank Offering Video #3: Christian Education

The OPC is pleased to present the 3rd in a series of videos that are being made available this year to help promote the Thank Offering. The videos are timed to coordinate with the suggested distribution schedule for the bulletin inserts that were mailed to all churches earlier this month (see schedule, below).

This week's video focuses on the work of the Committee on Christian Education (CCE). General Secretary Danny Olinger gives a brief history of the origins and purpose of the Thank Offering, and describes how the gifts of God's people make it possible for the CCE to provide and oversee such resources as:

  • New Horizons
  • OPC.org
  • Church publications (i.e., Confession of Faith, Book of Church Order)
  • Ministerial training classes, conferences, and seminars
  • Supporting internships in local churches
  • Special Committee on Marriage and Sexuality

"Every year I am so amazed at how much the people of God give to the Thank Offering. It is such a blessing ... for a church our size to receive the gifts that we do," says Danny Olinger.
