After successful completion of our first goal of providing a Simple Water Well as part of the ELCA Good Gifts program it was time to set a new goal for future Noisy Offerings.
The Stewardship Committee reviewed the Good Gifts Catalog and took a recommendation to the Church Council to provide an Oxen and Plow for our next goal. According to the catalog “With tractors and machines few and far between, a rural farmer can only till so much of a field by hand."
During worship on the January 12th, you can give with “noisy” coins, “hush” money (bills), or through text giving. Text as little as $3.00 to 817-760-2980 and add “Noisy” to your amount (example: $10 Noisy).
