LOUISVILLE, Ky.--Pittsburgh Presbytery has topped the $3 million mark in
gifts to The Bicentennial Fund of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
Two other presbyteries -- Chicago and Philadelphia -- passed the $2
million mark, according to year-end 1995 figures released by The
Bicentennial Fund office here.
Those figures show Pittsburgh Presbytery with total receipts of
$3,074,006. Of that money, more than $500,000 was given to General
Assembly projects, more than $100,000 for Synod of the Trinity projects,
and more than $2 million for projects in the presbytery.
Chicago Presbytery's receipts came to $2,141,795 and Philadelphia
Presbytery's to $2,117,553.
Several presbyteries have exceeded the $1 million mark in the
campaign, whose total goal is $150 million. They are: Grace Presbytery
($1,832,948), Detroit Presbytery ($1,699,497), Cascades Presbytery
($1,381,023), National Capital Presbytery ($1,069,204) and Whitewater
Valley Presbytery ($1,031,444).
Presbyteries getting close to the $1 million level include Baltimore,
New Covenant, Western New York, Central Florida, East Iowa, Carlisle,
Cincinnati and Elizabeth.
