The December special offering will be used to support the ministry of Puente de la Costa Sur. This is the same organization for which the Ministry of Social Concerns is collecting rubber boots. Puente de la Costa Sur provides comprehensive education and leadership development programs designed to transform lives and support residents to advocate for themselves and their communities. Examples are advocating for fair and equitable practices in the areas of immigration, education, youth and food security. You can learn more at http://mypuente.org.
The offering will be formally received on Sunday, December 9. 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 and click the “donate” button at the top of the page.
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://j.mp/speoff2018 or call the church office we will mail you one.
Thanks to your generosity, the November special offering is for Homelessness Ministries raised $1226. Additionally, as of the press deadline, $3345 was raised to assist evacuees of the Camp Fire in Butte County. And the Ministry of Social Concerns Team’s special holiday projects are continuing to raise money and rubber boots.
