From Faith Church Council –
Two temporary property-related funds are currently available for Faith members to consider.
- “Roof Fund-Narthex” will help to reduce the loan that Council had to arrange to cover the cost of this project from late 2022.
- “Gym Furnace Fund” will help to pay for the new furnace in the gym which will be installed later this spring.
If you wish to support either of these projects, please name them, as it shows above, on the “Special” line of your offering envelope or use a separate envelope from the pew with a note explaining your wishes. Council appreciates these extra gifts, so we do not fall behind in our regular budget items. Thanks so much!
Also, Council has set up a LAMP Team 2023 Fund to support the LAMP team’s work in Little Grand Rapids, Manitoba, this summer. You can support that work also through gifts designated on the ‘Special’ line of your offering envelope. Thank you!
We now have Interac e-Transfer set up through our congregation’s bank account. If you wish to make use of this for your offerings to God, then please email Sherrie for the details at: firstname.lastname@example.org
