A Message to Our Tabor Community
Dear fellow members and friends,
I am writing to you on behalf of the Finance Committee and the Session to give you an update on how the church is doing during this crisis.
This is the time that we, as a church family, need to come together to take care of each other. In this spirit, if you have financial needs or concerns, I invite you to contact Pastor Liz. Any contacts will remain confidential. For those who may be able to share more of your abundance, we have created a fund that will not only help others but also help pay our staff and the bills during this time. Your contributions to that fund are greatly appreciated and will also remain confidential. Mark your donations for the COVID-19 Relief Fund.
This is a nearly unprecedented time when we are experiencing hardship and sacrifice that is reminiscent of World War Two. The difference is that we are fighting an invisible enemy. It is critical that we continue to follow stay at home orders for another few weeks. Some of us will not be able to work and many will have significant losses in income. Others of us are fortunate to have a continued stream of income and other resources to get us through.
Thank you for your continued generosity. We encourage you to continue to be faithful in your giving to the church. You can mail your checks directly to the church, and they will be deposited on a regular basis. Another way to continue to give is to contact your bank to send a regular draft to the church from your account. We also have a new option of online giving that can be accessed on our website.
Further, the Session has applied for the funds available from the government to help pay salaries for the next couple of months, but we do not know yet if or when that will be approved.
We all need to work together in this trying time. We encourage you to be as generous as you are able.
Stay at home and wash your hands.
Cynthia Bowers, MD
Chair, Finance Committee
