We who represent the Mission and Service Committee would like to take this opportunity to clarify our dedication to working in our larger world community. Many times a year this committee looks beyond the doors of our congregation and promotes a special giving opportunity. It is our goal to inform our congregation on the benefactor of our gifts and then encourage the community to give if they choose to do so. Giving or not giving should be a personal choice. We sincerely thank each and every one of you for your prayerful consideration of our mission and we always welcome your suggestions.
