The Presbytery of the James is so thankful for each and every church and ministry within our midst and whom we support, and each one received an Inspire Gift of $2,000 as an expression of our gratitude. The only desire is that each ministry put this to use as the session, Board, mission, or ministry sees fit.
Blackstone Presbyterian Church is sharing the Inspire Gift they received from POJ. The session purchased 75 gift certificates from area restaurants and gave them to employees of their local grocery store in appreciation for their front-line service to the community.

Pastor Richard Goodman explains their motivation on Facebook: Blackstone Presbyterian Church
