During the Finance Committee's last meeting with our Financial Advisor, he mentioned that retired people can receive significant tax savings by designating the church to receive taxable distributions from their retirement accounts for their annual pledge. If you are interested in finding out more about this, our financial advisor will host a meeting to discuss this option of giving. Please let Laurie know if you are interested in finding out more about this and indicate your best time to meet. If there is interest, we will schedule a meeting.

Be Led Forth in Peace
The words of Isaiah 55 convey a profound message to us during A Season of Peace:
For you shall go out in joy, and be led forth in peace.
Go out in joy. When we look around our world these days, it is sometimes hard to feel joyful. Yet joy inherently embraces optimism. Joy is the companion of faith and hope. In our polarized world torn by war, famine, and marginalization of the poor and disenfranchised, we are in desperate need of joyful and brave people who are willing to ask the hard questions and live the difficult solutions that make peace possible.
Be led forth in peace. Through the Peace & Global Witness Offering, we connect with each other, as the Church, together, to confront systems of injustice and promote reconciliation in places around the world and right here at home.
Peace Offering Collected Through World Communion Day, Sunday October 2nd.
