"Mortgage Burning Campaign"
Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ:
We are writing in regards to our efforts to pay-off the church mortgage of about $17,000. We were blessed with a $50,000.00 tithing to which was a help in bringing us within the current balance of just over $17,000. We are requesting your consideration of a contribution of any amount. Elimination of our mortgage would allow us the freedom to re-establish our missionary and community outreach, i.e. the sundry pantry which helped to serve 25-30 local families; also to open the Willie Sherrell Library and café. We will be celebrating our 97th Church Anniversary on Sunday, April 9th, 2017. At this time, we are prayerful that we will have met our goal to pay-off our mortgage.
We would greatly appreciate any donation you can make. Should you make a donation toward the mortgage burning campaign you will be recognized in our special bulletin on our 97th Church Anniversary, unless you request to be anonymous? We will also provide a donation receipt for your records and for tax purposes.
If you have any questions or need further information, please contact Min. Reginia Arrington at 330-401-2705 or at the above email address. Please keep us in prayer as we press on in faith, and may God bless our efforts and yours, exceedingly and abundantly.
On behalf of the members of St. John Worship & Praise Community Church, thank you for your consideration.
