HAPPY ANNIVERSARY JUNE COUPLES
Deacon Tim and Cecilia Marcy married for 56 years this month was previously omitted from the June list. Apologies!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS-
your weekly contributions and for your generous response to our Tithe/Fundraising effort. To date,
we have collected
$15,411.00 of our $25,000.00 goal, (which is the usual profit from both of our events). The idea presented for this special “tithe” is that you give what you normally contribute or spend, to these fundraising events, and if this “no Church due to Corona” makes us have a shortfall meeting our budget needs, we will have this money to subsidize our needs. Please make sure you note “tithe” on the memo line or on your envelope, if you wish the contribution to be applied to the Fundraising effort.
