PAPERLESS – The Stewardship Ministry Team will begin emailing the quarterly giving statements to members starting with the second quarter of 2017 (April – June). Year-end statements used for tax purposes will continue to be sent via the U. S. Mail. Members who do not have an email address will also receive their quarterly statements by regular mail.
The giving statements will be sent to the mail address the church has on file, but only one statement will be sent to each pledging unit. The document will be an attachment to the email in an Adobe pdf formant from email@example.com. You may have to adjust you spam filter or check you spam folder after the initial mailing to be sure you receive the statements in the future.
This initiative was launched to enable members to receive their quarterly statements quickly and reduce mailing costs. If you DO NOT want to receive you giving statements by email or have any questions, please contact Ted McCormack, Financial Secretary, at 378-0323 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our congregation is pleased to become a member of ACTS, Area Congregations Together in Service. ACTS is an interfaith mission providing support and resources to residents of Greater Richmond.

People seeking financial aid through our church office will be referred to ACTS and will receive services and guidance that our office is not equipped to offer.
