Per Capita for 2017 is $29.80. Per Capita is the covenantal pledge we make to the Presbytery to support the work we do together. It dates back some 200+ years (1789) to the beginnings of the Presbyterian Church in the brand new United States of America. Per Capita is divided among John Knox Presbytery, the Synod of Lakes and Prairies, and the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA), to enable these bodies to further the mission of Jesus Christ around the world.
