Pastor’s Discretionary Fund Could Use Your Help! Peace Church has a Pastor’s Discretionary Fund that is used by Pastor Scott to help people in need when requests are made and for other minor expenses that arise in his work. This fund is NOT part of the regular church budget and occasionally needs the support of members. This fund has fallen to a low level, so if you would like to donate toward it on top of your regular giving to the church, it would be much appreciated. Please designate your giving as PDF. Thanks so much!
Giving Needed Towards Janitorial Service: Once a month, we have a janitorial service come and clean the church. The cost of the service is $65 a month. Other times in the month we have volunteers come and clean and we are always looking for help with this task. However, if you can’t physically help but wouldn’t mind giving towards this expense, it would be appreciated. We have January covered. If you are able to contribute on a monthly basis for future months, please let Jade, Office Manager, know. Please designate your giving towards this expense as Janitorial Service. Thanks!
