Bessemer’s Per Capita for 2017

Per Capita is a “per capita” contribution that supports the ongoing ministries of the Presbyterian Church, the Synod of the Trinity, and the Presbytery of Shenango.  Whether you are aware of it or not, our presbytery is vastly supportive of our congregation and our mission.  Because we wish to continue our contributions and enable the mission of the greater church, we ask each member to consider donating their part.  The breakdown is as follows:                                               

Presbytery of Shenango              $ 28.06

Synod of the Trinity            + $   2.30

General Assembly               +$   7.50
