CHRISTMAS IS A TIME OF GIVING and we have all found that it is more blessed to give than to receive. 2017 has been an amazing year at Central. Our mission of MAKING DISCIPLES OF JESUS is to give everyone the gifts of hope, love, joy and peace. Our mission will continue to serve anyone who needs it, but we can’t do this without your ongoing financial support. Last night the Church Council met and is asking members and friends of Central to join them in praying that God will increase the financial support of Central.
Our fiscal year began July 1, 2017 and after the first five months our giving is 8% below our expenses. We have had to use money from the reserve fund to cover some of our operating expenses. Please consider giving a SPECIAL YEAR-END GIFT TO CENTRAL to help us grow our giving. Gifts of cash, stocks, checks and credit cards are gladly accepted. With the end of 2017 just days away, I hope you will respond with a special year-end gift. If postmarked by December 31, your gift is tax-deductible for 2017.
Thank you for you prayerfully considering this important request!
On behalf of the Church Council,
