As we enter the New Year, I would like to extend a big thank you to all of the community for your prompt and generous support for the new parish center. With the generosity of all of you, we have been able to raise more than $800,000. I wish to share a very special thank you to the Pastega family, whose initial donation jump-started the project.
This letter includes our annual review of income and expenses. Your regular giving helps us pay the bills, support our operations and staff, and keep the facilities going. Above all, it helps this place to be a presence of Christ in Corvallis.
I would also like to announce that we are switching to Faith Direct for our online giving service. If you presently use Vanco, click here to enroll with Faith Direct. We encourage you to consider online giving for several reasons. It is more efficient for both the giver and parish in terms of processing and record keeping, it enables more consistency, and with the convenient phone app, and it can support all of your church payments.
Our Finance Council members are: Jay Celorie, Bill Dunn and Catherine Mater.
I wish all of you a blessed New Year.
