NWMC Summer Service Breakfasts
Put Sundays March 30th and April 27th on your calendar for extra special coffee hours after church, and this is why!
Hannah Stinson and Jessica Warholak, sophomores in college, have been selected out of over 40 candidates to be Summer Service Missionaries through the New Wilmington Mission Conference. There is no cost, but donations will be greatly appreciated. If you would like to lend a hand, that would be appreciated also.
Thank you in advance for supporting these young ladies in their exciting spiritual journey.
Check out this month's informer for event dates and times or just click on March Fellowship.
Finance & Stewardship
What is cash flow? Simply stated is the maintaining money coming in on a regular basis to be able to pay bills when they are due. Presently we are experiencing a cash flow crunch due to weather conditions this month – some expenses are up, and attendance is down. 80% of our budgeted needs are fixed expenses such as payroll, heat, light, electric, and telephone. We know that these expenses are due on a monthly basis so we ask that we may depend on everyone’s efforts to maintain the cash flow needed. We prayerfully hope our church needs may always be met.
