To: Our Congregation

From:  Your Mission Committee

We as a Christ-centered church are working diligently to increase our assistance to others in need. Your FPGH Mission Committee has been working for you but now we would love to get your new ideas. The committee has temporarily set aside $5000 for five to ten special one-time projects, up to $1000 each, in 2019. Perhaps you have heard of a specific need from a local, regional, or even international group. If you have, we need your written suggestions and information before August 31st. The mission committee will review all the submitted projects for consideration.

The attached form should be used for submittals and returned to the church office. We honestly don’t know how many ideas we will get as it is really is up to you.

Once projects have been identified and evaluated, your Mission Committee will communicate back to the congregation. Funding is to be provided by the end of October.
