These are received for guest speakers, bands, and people sent out to minister from the local church, as well as other groups who minister in the assembly such as Gideon's, Teen Challenge or Salvation Army.
While completely free of any debt, our beautiful building still requires continual painting, repairs and maintenance as well as upgrades to remain functional as a growing church and community rental facility. Therefore donations to the building fund are used for things like AC upgrades, improvements to electrical, plumbing and any other system within the facility plus renovations of any of the existing ministry rooms. Special building projects are announced as they are initiated and funds are solicited for these as people believe they are to give.
These funds provide for purchasing of the curriculum, software, props, and support training materials required for the children’s classes.
These funds support missionaries that are speakers in our assembly as well as specific mission organizations that are affiliated with our leadership or are recommended by our elders for financial assistance.
This is a type of offering received that is dispersed by the deacon / leadership team to those in need within our assembly and community.
