Year End Giving, Faith Promise, & the Christmas Offering
Thank you so much for your continued generosity to College Avenue. You empower us to be a missional church, making disciples of Jesus for the transformation of the world. As we near the end of the year, please remember that all gifts to College Avenue on this tax year must be post marked by Dec. 31. If you decide to bunch gifts this year for tax purposes, please indicate to us the intended amount for 2019 and 2020 budgets.
Also, our 2019 Faith Promise gifts can be completed at this time. These gifts support local missions which include Covenant Partners, Christian Ministries, A Better Way, West View Elementary, and Habitat for Humanity. Beyond Delaware County, Faith Promise supports Red Bird Mission, Africa University, and Mission Guatemala. Please designate your offering as Faith Promise. Even if you have not previously made a pledge, your gift will be very much appreciated.
Finally, we will be collecting a special offering at both Christmas Eve services. Our Christmas Offering gives us an opportunity to impact lives through the Giving Tree for 2020 and the Bishop’s Christmas Offering for Children which supports ministries around the world with a heart for serving children. Through the kindness and generosity of people like you, the Indiana Conference of The United Methodist Church can impact young lives by strengthening ministries like IMPACT 2818 Camp & Outdoor Ministries, children and youth homes, local outreach projects, The Advance Projects, the Bishop’s fund for emerging children’s projects, and so much more.
