    EVERY DAY FOR CHRIST UPDATE I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued response and generosity

    in financially supporting our church, enabling it to realize it's ministries and missions on a daily ba-

    sis.

    This year, we collected 57 pledge cards totaling $255,290 in pledged support, equating to 155

    days of operation. This is truly a blessing! And, because 15 cards came during our January Renew-

    al Challenge, and totaled $61,150 in pledged dollars, they will be matched with a 3% anonymous

    gift by a group of donors, for an additional $1,834.50 — designated to our local missions. Bless-

    ings upon blessings!

    Thank you, again, for embracing and supporting our church's mission, and for helping us to deliv-

    er Everyday For Christ for our community.

    In His and your service,

    Jim Richmond, Chairman - Finance Committee
