Our congregation is part of the Presbyterian Church (USA), the Synod of Alaska- Northwest, and Northwest Coast Presbytery. Each year we are assessed an amount per member (per capita) to support the operations of each of these governing bodies, including salaries, meeting expenses, and travel expenses. The 2018 per capita assessment is $48.23, and is divided in this way: NWC Presbytery ($40.00), Synod ($0.50), and General Assembly ($7.73). The synod reduced their per capita by $1, a change we were unaware of before last week, which is why the envelope in your offering box has the incorrect amount. If you are able to pay for your per capita, that keeps this expense out of our general budget. Please put “per capita” in the memo line on your check, or place the amount in your per capita envelope when you send that in to the church. Thank you!
