Several years ago, our Vestry and SWEEPS Council decided that on the Second Sunday of every month, we would take a "second offering" for some local charitable organization. It has proven extremely successful! It gives us the opportunity to remember, pray for, and support very worthy organizations in our own community who are, in their own way, doing God's work.
Here is the Second Sunday Offering schedule for 2017:
January - Mark’s Discretionary Fund February - Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) March - Sangre De Cristo Hospice April - Laundry Love May – Pregnancy Center June - El Hogar July – Fremont Hospice August - Mark’s Discretionary Fund September - Free Pantry October - Humane Society - Blessing of the Animals November - Mercy Today December - Loaves & Fishes
