A flood of good things

Because of your generosity, we have seen a flood of good happen at Messiah including:

Additionally, your contributions will make possible a wide variety of upcoming ministries including:

We are pressed to count the ways your generosity to Messiah Lutheran Church and Preschool impacts our community and our ministries in Jesus' name. Thank you for making all this possible.

 

We invite you to help

We also need to disclose that we recently experienced three very significant and unforeseen capital expenses:

Because these expenses happened so closely together, they have placed considerable strain on the operating fund with expenses exceeding current income. The CLT will—of course—make necessary adjustments to bring operating expenses in line with income. The CLT also invites you to consider making a special gift so that mission and ministries will move forward with minimal disruption or reduction.

 

Your future quarterly and year-end statements

While you have received this statement by mail, we hope to soon save postage and staff time by sending out statements digitally to those who have provided Messiah with an email address, and in 2015 to provide you with secure online access to your statement. We plan to send your final 2014 statement both digitally and via hard copy through the mail in February.

Thank you again for your generosity and support of ministries at Messiah.

Sincerely,

Jim Dawson, Financial Secretary
