Tithe/Fundraising effort. To date we have collected $15,861.00 of our $25,000.00 goal, (which is the usual profit from the Fall Festival and Golf Outing). The idea presented for this special “tithe” is that you give what you normally contribute or spend, to these fundraising events.\ If we have a shortfall, we’ll have this money to subsidize our needs. Please make sure you note “tithe”on the memo line or on your envelope to apply this to the Fundraising effort. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
