Spotlight on Mission – Discretionary Fund

spotlightAs part of our Mission Giving there is a fund so that we can respond to specific needs such as natural disasters and families and individuals who over the year have been in need in various ways, and giving from this fund has helped in a small way. Please pray for the many groups that help people in times of crisis that money sent will be used wisely.

Thank you on behalf of our Mission partners to all those you who during August at our Team Services supported them, they really do appreciate our help over the year.

Don’t feel that this is the only time you can give, pop an envelope in to the collection plate clearly marked for our Mission Partners at any service across the Team and it can be added to the fund.
