Diaconate Mercy Fund Special Offering: Sunday, December 19, 2010

“Serving on the Diaconate has really been a privilege for me. It’s humbling to be able to play a part in my fellow congregants lives, often when they’re facing the most difficult of circumstances, and it is a blessing to be a part of a ministry in which I am a witness to the merciful provision of the Lord.”  – Deaconess

On Sunday, December 19 the Diaconate will receive our annual Special Offering at all five services. This will give our members and regular attendees an opportunity to give to the Mercy Fund. In addition to prayerfully considering contributing to this vital ministry of mercy, please take a look around and encourage those congregants in need to reach out to the Diaconate for help. Our Mercy Fund is available to members and regular attendees of Redeemer for practical needs.

We on the Diaconate would like to share with you the blessing of witnessing our Lord’s merciful provisions. The Mercy Fund enables our deacons and deaconesses to meet the concrete and visible needs of those in our church community who are experiencing financial, physical, social and spiritual hardships, especially in this recession.

If you are a Redeemer member or regular attendee with a financial or other practical need, call the Diaconate Helpline, (212) 726-1334. For more information, please visit www.redeemer.com/diaconate.

Thank you in advance for your partnership.
