Red Basket Offering

Frequently, the church receives requests for assistance from individuals and families within and outside of the church family.  Requests may be for a tank of gasoline, help with a utility bill, grocery money, help with rent--just to name a few.  Resources for this vital work are drawn from the Pastor’s Discretionary Fund which comes through The Red Basket Offering.  The Red Basket Offering is received each first Sunday of the month when people come down to receive Holy Communion.  All persons are encouraged to give generously to this special ministry.  (Earmark checks "Red Basket Fund" or "Pastor's Discretionary Fund.)
