The Fifth Sunday is coming.  The Finance Committee is continuing the Fifth Sunday Giving Program.  Here is the idea.  Most people figure their giving to the church on a monthly basis.  Most months have 4 Sundays.  So, the fifth Sunday is an EXTRA Sunday.  It happens 4 or 5 times a year.  We are asking you give a little extra on that extra day.  Please mark your contribution “Fifth Sunday”.  The full amount collected for “Fifth Sunday” will be paid directly on the principal of the mortgage.  So far, we have collected $8,035.00 for Fifth Sunday giving.  Thank you so much for your generous support.  We are making a difference.  The next Fifth Sunday is July 29, 2018.   All you need to do to participate is bring in a donation marked “Fifth Sunday” in the memo.  If you will not be at Worship that day, it can be brought earlier or mailed in.  The amount is totally up to you.  No amount is too small or too large.  Thank you in advance.  You are the best.  We can do this!
