My birthday is March 23! Let's celebrate! I'm way too old for presents and wouldn't be able to blow out that many candles, but instead would be so grateful if you'd consider something a little different - a virtual party! No matter your distance or how busy you are, you can celebrate with me!
What do you do when you're turning 47 and your beautiful 8-year-old, peace-loving, justice-seeking, kindness-showing, equality-pursuing church has outgrown its space where EVERYONE is welcome to know God's love? You put yourself out there and ask friends to help you raise funds for the new building in honor of your birthday!! Please help me raise $1,047 by Easter, April 5th and I will match it for a total of $2,094 to Kirkwood United Church of Christ's capital campaign (www.kirkwooducc.com).
Please consider donating whatever you can, whether it's $5 or $50. Your contribution will certainly help us purchase a new building, but, more importantly, it will help us welcome more people and do more good in the world - for decades to come! Your gift will also be tax deductible and you'll receive a donation acknowldgement for tax purposes.
With a thankful heart and a virtual hug (redeemable for a real hug next time I see you),
P.S. If by some miracle we raise more than the goal, I'm not sure what I'll do, but for certain I will be humbled, honored and wholeheartedly grateful!
