This year our prayer focus during the time of Advent is racial reconciliation. We have paper copies available to brad on Sundays, or you can download your own here: advent-guide-16
I found free money!
Now that I have your attention, let me clarify. I work for a company that does an “Employee Giving Campaign” each year which encourages employees to give, but matching their annual donations to any non-profit. This includes schools and CHURCHES! Since I was already giving monthly via online check, I decided to switch during my employers giving campaign to get the employee match. Every month starting in January, my employer will deduct my tithe from my paycheck and send it to Evergreen directly, along with a DOUBLE match, so essentially every $100 becomes $300 per month! FREE MONEY!
Many of you work for companies that do employee matching programs. If you’re not sure if your company has one, I encourage you to ask, and sign up to have your tithe taken directly from your paycheck. Double bonus is they do any sort of matching! As you may or may not know, we have a new space, which could use some love. In addition, as we look to the future, we will need additional funds to support a new space, new families, new kids being born, and a growing community and outreach focused body of believers. Change isn’t free, and we need as much help as we can get. If you have questions, please feel free to ask me. I usually loitering in the back at church or making brunch plans for the post service.
