For just as the body is one and has many members,
and all the members of the body,
though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.
– 1 Corinthians 12:12

Q & A about Per Capita
At last year’s Annual Congregational Meeting, the question came up: “What is the “per capita” payment? And what is it used for?”
The “per capita” is an important feature of membership in the Presbyterian Church (USA), which supports the administrative functioning of our denomination. The following information is provided by our presbytery:
The “per capita” contribution is the designated dollar amount that is asked of each member of the Presbyterian Church (USA) as a yearly voluntary contribution. The per capita contributions remind us of the “connectional nature” of the Presbyterian Church (USA). We at Lewinsville are connected with the National Capital Presbytery (NCP), the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic, and the General Assembly. Per capita payments keep the governing bodies of the PC(USA) in operation. Per capita is used to pay for the essential administrative operation of the presbytery, the synod, and the General Assembly.
The 2021 Per Capita amount is $42.67 per member.
Per capita giving is distinguished from “Mission Giving” in that it is operational money needed to keep the three governing bodies of our church functional.
We are greatly appreciative when members of Lewinsville pay their per capita portion. You may make your check for $42.67 (per member in your family) to “Lewinsville Presbyterian Church,” and write “per capita” in the memo line. If you have any questions, please reach out to Pastor Scott or Mary Frase, chair of Finance.
