Thank You for Supporting the Outreach Ministries

Thank You for Supporting the Outreach Ministries

March 7, 2024

Dear members and friends of Old First Reformed Church,

It was a thrilling moment when, at our January 28, 2024, Annual Meeting, the Elders asked the congregation to make a special gift to support our mission and cover the shortfall for a part-time Outreach staffer to coordinate Outreach meals and plan the Summer Program. Before the meeting ended, an amazing $10,870 was pledged for Outreach Ministries!  And it gets better!  After the Annual Meeting an additional $1000 donation was made through a charitable organization, thanks to one of our members!

What an outstanding display of generosity! And here is how to take the next step:

If you have made a financial commitment or have offered to volunteer to help with Outreach programs, thank you so very much!

You will be hearing from a member of Outreach SLG to sign you up to volunteer for a Saturday Breakfast or a Sunday Dinner. 

If you made a commitment of financial support, it would be most helpful to receive your pledge by June 1, 2024, if possible. Most of our work with summer camps is done in the spring and summer. Rest assured; however, we will appreciate the donation as well if it is received later in the year. 

And finally, it’s not too late to donate or volunteer, if you are just now hearing of this invitation!

What a generous church,  turning God’s blessings to us into compassion to the least of these! Thank you so much, and thanks be to God for leading us in caring paths!
