Birthday Gift For Jesus Offering

This year’s Christmas offering will be used for two very important projects. We will be remodeling the Preschool Sunday School and Junior church classrooms and replacing the roof of the north hallway, from the Four Corners area north to the Fellowship Hall. Cost of these renovations are estimated at $71,000. Praise the Lord, as of last week we have $68,470 through your faithful giving and good stewardship. This leaves us only $2,530 needed for our Christmas offering to complete these projects! Gifts given above the goal will help us with additional projects. Please pray about what the Lord will have you to do. You can give a lump sum or spread your gifts over the next three months. Just add your gifts to your tithes and missions offerings, marking your gift amount as e “Christmas.”
