We trust God to see us through every aspect of the crisis caused by COVID-19. We are thankful to God and to all of you for giving generously and supporting our ministry.
Many of our church members have lost jobs and may not be able to contribute to the church as much as when they were working. Please know that we are praying for you and encourage you to remember that God is walking beside you in this stressful time. Please remember our food pantry is available for all our members.
Please continue mailing in contributions and/or consider giving electronically. If you set up the option to have your tithes and offerings as recurring contributions, your gifts will make it to church even if you cannot.
It is our hope that giving will remain steady even though we have not been able to gather together in our sanctuary. Due to lower giving on two Sundays, we ended March with a deficit of $2,900. Regular giving is so very important to the body of Christ. Maintaining the discipline of giving, even when you are not “in church” is a sign of faithfulness and thankfulness for all God has given to us. Many of us have received a stimulus payment from the government and some could, with joy, give a tithe of that payment to the church.
If you are considering giving a special gift to Good Hope, please keep in mind that our food pantry has been especially busy, and a fund drive for our new camera system- which will be used to grow our recording and online ministry- has also begun. Both of these ministries would welcome your gift.
Remember that online giving is free to you. Good Hope covers the minimal expense for your transactions. Online contributions show up on your quarterly giving statement, just like the gifts you place in a giving envelope. Our Financial Secretary, Erin Sturrus, can answer any questions. You may email her at [email protected].
