Oaxaca 2013 Mission Team Presentation and Offering

Oaxaca 2013 Mission Team Presentation and Offering - Next Sunday, June 2, our team will be presented, and a special offering will be taken.  Please pray and give as you can.  (Another offering will be taken June 9.) The money covers Pastor David’s way, scholarships, plus a $100 administrative fee for the mission group in Oaxaca. It will also help cover a ministry contribution of approximately $2000, purchase materials, employ extra help if needed, etc. If any extra money is raised, we would like to help team members with travel insurance.  Beyond that, we will decide together as a team how to disperse extra funds, whether making an additional donation to the ministry in Oaxaca, putting it back into our Mission Team account, etc. Note: as part of adopting the missional budget, the special offering will be the only appeal.  There will be no other fund-raisers, such as bake sales, etc.
