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.

CENTER FOR FOOD ACTION can always use your help!  If you can donate canned or packaged goods, please
