It’s that time of year again – the United Episcopal Church Women (UECW) is asking for your participation in the Advent Freewill Offering. The weeks before Christmas are a good time for everyone to thank God for their blessings and share a little something so the UECW can help where needed.
There is no specific collection date; each parish is free to choose a particular Sunday, or an entire month, or all of Advent. Ideally, one or more ladies in each location will step up to find a way to successfully collect the funds. Of course, your pastor must be consulted and approve! Some suggestions are mite boxes, a designated donation can or box, a bake sale, a special collection, a raffle – you know what will find favor with your congregation. Set a goal and get your parish involved in meeting it. A donation equal to $2 per parishioner would be such a blessing!
Checks should be made payable to “UECW”and sent by January 31, 2019 to treasurer Beth Lepak, 2171 Woodruff Road, Hastings, MI 49058.
The UECW makes funds available to Missions, Parishes, Clergy, and others in need.
