Another Fifth Sunday is coming.  The Finance Committee has decided to continue the Fifth Sunday Giving Program which was started last year.  Here is the idea:  Most people figure their giving to the church on a monthly basis.  There is anywhere between 3 – 5 fifth Sundays in a year.  So, the fifth Sunday is an EXTRA Sunday.  We are asking you give a little extra on that day.  The full amount collected for “Fifth Sunday” will be paid directly on the principal of the mortgage.  In 2016, we paid $3285.00 from Fifth Sunday giving.  Thank you so much for your generous support.  We are making a difference.

The next Fifth Sunday is April 30, 2017.  All you need to do to participate is bring in a donation marked “Fifth Sunday” in the check memo.  If you will not be at Worship that day, it can be brought earlier or mailed in.  The amount is totally up to you.  No amount is too small or too large.  Thank you in advance.  You are the best.  We can do this!
