Our major fundraiser,The St. James Fair, is only a year away. Ideas for other events to raisefunds, promote fellowship, and attract new friends are being solicited.
Our annual Stewardship Campaign runs from October 12 until November 9th, where fundraisingis our only focus.
In regard to the St.James Fair, it is a good time to start considering things that will result inthe best outcome for our church. As all donations are tax deductible, you,your family and friends, might want to think of higher value goods thatmay be better for the donor as a tax write off, and better for St. James as asource of income. Trading a car? Grandmother's things that are nice but youn ever use?
Talent and storage areother essentials required to make the Fair a success. Please let us know. Fund raising, besides what the term implies,is a great chance for fellowship, and to introduce new people to the "LittleStone Church with the Warm Heart." Please direct all ideas and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
