Our congregation has what is known as a “ministerial discretionary fund,” similar to those at other churches. Such funds are typically, though not exclusively, used for pastoral support: helping folks out who are experiencing a temporary financial hardship, expressions of condolence or support at times of grief/loss, and other needs.
It is the time of year when we invite members and friends to contribute to this fund, as they are able and inclined. Your generous financial support will go a long way in helping us, as a church community, respond to important needs when they arise.
On Sunday, October 1st, on what in the Christian tradition is referred to as World Communion Sunday, the plate collection will go to support this fund. In addition, if you wish to contribute online, you may do so by clicking here.
We will be soliciting donations through the end of October. Thank you, in advance!
