The September Special Offering is for Heifer International. Heifer International empowers families to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity – but their approach is more than just giving them a handout. Heifer links communities and helps bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. You can learn more at www.heifer.org.
The offering will be formally received on Sunday, September 10. As with all our special offerings, you are welcome to give at any time (always make checks payable to Niles Discovery Church). You can also give online: go to our church webpage, click the “donate” button at the top of the page, and select the appropriate special offering.
Niles Discovery Church receives a special offering each month. With that many possibilities for special giving, you may need to choose which ones are most important to you. You can see the schedule of special offerings at http://bit.ly/speoff2017 or call the church office and we will mail you one.
Thanks to your generosity, the giving of both supplies and money for additional purchases, an SUV filled with school supplies was delivered to the Family Resource Center in time for distribution to families who needed them as their children prepared for the new school year. We’re sorry we didn’t get a picture of the stuffed SUV.
