Dear Church Family, Thanks for your amazing generosity this year re World Missions and for our need for new Air-conditioning in our facilities. We hope to have the Auditorium cooling/heating completed by February. Our Church Budget for 2017 has been set on seeing our Tithes reach $13,500 per week which is an 8% increase on 2016. Church friends I encourage you to be consistent in your regular practice of tithing which can easily be overlooked. With me ministering away so often, I have found giving electronically has solved this regularity issue for me...you may want to do the same. Thanks again for your faithful financial support and let's all work together to reach that $13,500 tithing target in 2017. Pastor Bill Vasilakis Senior Minister
