We are planning for a Parent Child Dedication time during this service
We give thanks to God for your generosity, and commitment to the ministry of the church, as you have responded to the financial need through the year and over the last month.
As of December 29, we still need approximately $14,000 to cover our remaining financial commitments.
If you have not had a chance to respond to this need over the last few weeks, and have been planning to do that, we invite you to prayerfully consider what you are able to give before the end of the year. We trust that God will provide so we can fully meet our commitments for 2022.
Cheques can be placed in one of two mailboxes at Dawn Zehr’s home. E-transfers or questions about donating can be sent to email@example.com.
Donations received on or before December 31, 2022 are eligible for a 2022 receipt for income tax purposes. Thank you for your partnership in the ministry of the church!
