Please Consider a Gift to the Organ Fund
Please be reminded that we have an organ fund needed to rebuild our existing organ or to purchase a new one. We encourage you to contribute to this fund whenever possible. To make a contribution, you may do so along with your regular offering. On your offering envelope, simply write “organ fund” with the amount you are contributing in the category marked “other”. There is already a substantial amount of money in the fund, but we anticipate that we will need a sizable amount in addition.
