CHAIR FUNDRAISER

After 22 years of faithful service to this parish, it is time for our current chairs to be retired. In the next couple of months, we are planning on purchasing 200 new chairs. To do this, we will need to raise $15,000. Please support this fundraiser by contributing a little more than your usual tithe/offering.

On the Offering Envelope, where it says, “Special Offering”, please write “Chairs”.
