Announcements for Sunday, March 15, 2020

Need 1-2 More Servers this Saturday for the Saturday Lunch at Salvation Army.  Please talk to Alice Butch if you can help.

 

Cross and Flame Magnets are for sale for $5 next to the name tags.  Proceeds support God’s Country Cooperative Parish.

 

Mission Focus

Throughout the year, various kind-hearted individuals donate money to “undesignated missions.”  The Missions Committee uses this money for local, state, and worldwide missions.  The glass display case currently focuses on some local missions that we financially support throughout the year.  On the top shelf you will notice financial and needed supply donations to our local spousal abuse center.  We have occasionally given monetary help to a local radio ministry.  As all are already aware through our monthly collections, we support the local "backpack" program in our schools. The bottom row features the Pastor's discretionary fund.  This allows the pastor to help individuals or families who may be facing an emergency crisis and need some financial support immediately.  Just wanted to keep the congregation updated on how we spend some of our funds.  Thank you so much for your generosity!
