Vacation

Hi folks, I’ll be away on vacation from Friday June 16 to July 2, and then from July 3 to 9th I’ll be in Vancouver taking a few continuing education courses at VST. Thanks to Ken, Clara, and Rev. Gloria Christian for taking the morning services while I’m away. The evening prayer services are on hold until I get back.

Have a great summer! God bless.
Rev. David

Buy a Year Total

Our Buy a Year campaign has concluded with a total raised of $15,550. A great big thank you to all who donated, and to all who continue to contribute to the life and work of our church to be disciples in our community.

The “Buy a Year” Campaign

As we have presented in church over the past few weeks and as many of you know, the church is facing a budget deficit of $23,000 for this year to cover only basic operating expenses. As such, we have launched the "Buy a Year Campaign," to raise enough funds to take us to next year without having to further deplete our reserve funds. If you have not already received your package from one of our Weavers, or you are just a visitor, take a moment to view these presentation slides and consider a donation to help the church continue to do the work we do in the community.

 

This is difficult news, not only for the church, but if we believe in the church's mission, religious or not, to continue that mission we will need to be sustainable. To donate, you can bring you donation in an envelope to the office specifically marked "Buy a Year," or you can visit the donate page and write "Buy a Year" in the message box.

 

God Bless.
