Now that we’re here in our newly renovated Sanctuary and Hall, we’ve found that there are some things that we would like to have to help us in carrying out our ministry. But we have a Unified Budget – which means that unless an expense is in the Budget, we cannot add it, and that all gifts go to one pot – the General Fund.
As you’ll have noticed in the “News of Note” in the last few weeks, that General Fund is in need of funds. But, we want to do some extra things too! So, Council Circle has approved a list of special Capital items, and created a “Wish List”. A brochure and envelope is available on the Welcome Table. We would like to offer you the opportunity to give to one or more of these “wishes”, if you are able.
The first item on the list is “An over-and-above” gift to the General Fund. The other items? Sound baffling for the hall, a baby change table, a labyrinth, a video projection system, organ repairs, microwaves, a flat-screen TV and DVD player, cupboards for Children’s Church and an outside sign. We can only proceed with these projects if we have the money.
If you are interested, please take one of the brochures, and the enclosed envelope and consider what you can do. You can return it on the offering plate next Sunday or to the church office during the week. Some of the items are smaller and some larger, you can give towards any combination of the items you choose.
