Our church is facing difficult financial times, and we hope you can help.
Since the Covid-19 crisis began in March, income is down dramatically as collections and fundraising activities are severely limited. This period of crisis has also highlighted the ongoing challenge of maintaining our church with fewer regular church attendees and volunteers.
We enjoy good attendance for special occasions like baptisms, weddings and funerals, but it is not sufficient to sustain our church. Too many small communities like ours have already lost their churches, and we don’t want to join their ranks.
Our church has a long history of serving the community and of being there when needed. It now asks for support from the larger church community living far and wide so it can continue to serve current and future generations.
We hope you can help, with either a one-time donation or a regular monthly contribution.
Thank you, and God bless!
