We have always been an extremely blessed parish with our many resources and beautiful facilities, but most of all, by our parishioners. We are urging our parishioners to move to our online giving resource so that the parish does not lose its revenue to fund outreach ministries, salaries, and other efforts to keep us all connected to Jesus Christ. As always, we depend on your weekly donations to make these essential ministries happen. We still need your donations. Also, if you are blessed to be able to dig deeper and offer more than normal, your help is appreciated.
Our online giving, Give Central, will help sustain our Church. The program allows you to contribute through your smart device or computer with direct withdrawal (ACH) or credit card. The Give Central program allows for multiple, ongoing or one-time payments on any date you specify.
A special note about your Sunday offering:
- Our parish is attempting to minimize the economic impact on our staff. Most of these staff members are working from home to continue to provide services to the parish and community and/or continue to teach students on their platforms. Guided by the mission of Christ, we feel we must do this.
- All buildings are closed except for the two church buildings, at this time, and must continue to be maintained, disinfected and have utilities.
- We continue to have monthly bills to pay or those from previous purchases, though all new non-essential orders have been halted.
- Most importantly, we are glad to have our Parishioners Helping People Ministry available to help anyone who needs a ride, food or medication delivery, or other urgent assistance. We have a team of parishioners willing to help, just leave a message at the parish office.
