Per Capita is a set amount of money (apportionment) per member that is paid annually to the Presbytery of the Western Reserve, the Synod of the Covenant, and the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Per capita covers the ecclesiastical expenses of the denomination: the coordination and evaluation of mission, and the performance of ecclesiastical, legislative, and judicial functions. Per capita is an opportunity for all members of the Presbyterian Church to participate equally, responsibly, and interdependently by sharing the organizational costs of the larger church.

For more information about per capita, please refer to the PCUSA website at

The apportionment of the church for ecclesiastical expenses for 2024 is based upon the membership of FHC as reported as of December 31, 2022, or 368.

Of course, we understand that not everyone can afford to pay $38 per active member in a household. Any amount is appreciated, or no amount is OK. If, on the other hand, you can help assist others pay the per capita apportionment, in addition to your own, that is greatly appreciated as well. When paying please indicate “Per Capita” on the information line of your check or pay online using the “Designate a Special Gift” form and indicate “Per Capita” in the information section.
