ONLINE GIVING -  We are pleased to announce a convenient new way to make
your regular offerings.  With our new electronic giving program, you can easily
set up a recurring giving schedule or make one-time contributions. At NO COST
to you!  We encourage you to set up a schedule of recurring contributions.
It’s convenient for you and provides much needed consistency for our church. If you are currently giving on a weekly
basis, you will no longer need to write out 52 checks a year or prepare 52 envelopes. Even when travel, illness or other
circumstances prevent you from attending services, our church will continue to receive your contributions on an
uninterrupted basis. To become an electronic giver, contact
Roger Knauss or call the church office.

The
CENTER FOR FOOD ACTION can always use your help!  If you can donate canned or packaged goods, please
do so in the boxes located in the foyer and the coffee room.

NEW MEMBERS: If you are interested in joining our church and would like to learn more, please see Pastor
Bill for details.
