Weekly offering envelopes are a great way to combine your giving with attendance at worship services. Simply drop your gifts in the offering plate, and your personalized envelope number will assure that your contributions are properly credited. Offering envelopes can also be mailed if you can't attend a service. And there are special envelopes for special causes, such as outreach and missions.
Email email@example.com if you need a supply of offering envelopes.
