Per Capita

Per Capita is the name given to the amount of money paid by Westminster Presbyterian Church in support of the administrative costs of the larger church at the Presbytery, Synod, and General Assembly levels. The value assessed is based on the numerical membership of the church, hence the name.

Although Per Capita is an obligation of the Session, all active members are encouraged to contribute their share as a way to free up the Ministry Budget for other ministry opportunities and to help members be aware of and support the mission and ministry of the larger church.

Members are encouraged to make their Per Capita contribution early in the year since WPC makes its payment in installments during the first four months of the year. Special Per Capita offering envelopes are available in the church office.
