SUNDAY FLORAL OFFERING
We wish to acknowledge the frequent donations of Charis members for our Sunday Floral Offerings. These members often use this means of floral offering as an expression of thanksgiving to God in their lives. It has also been used in memory of loved ones, anniversary date etc. Their support and generosity have also greatly added to the ambience of our weekly Sunday Services.
We have put up a weekly schedule for floral offerings on the [Church Office] notice board for your convenience. Dates for floral offerings may be chosen in advance. Do also remember to include your name, purpose and contact number on this schedule. As a guideline, floral offering should be at least $100. You may drop your cheque payable to “Charis Methodist Church” indicating “Floral Offering” and date of offering at the back of the cheque into the offering bag or come to the Church Office to donate in cash to our Church Office Staff Thor Bee. Your contribution is always much appreciated!
SUNDAY REFRESHMENT OFFERING
If you have enjoyed the refreshment provided on Sundays and would like to contribute to this item as a service to the congregation, or as an act of thanksgiving, celebration of birthday, anniversary, baby first month or for whatever reasons that you are celebratory about, do put your name down on the Sunday Refreshment Offering Form posted on the [Church Office] notice board.
As a guideline, refreshment offering should be at least $100 and in multiples of $50. You may drop your cheque payable to “Charis Methodist Church” indicating “Refreshment Offering” and date of offering at the back of the cheque into the offering bag or come to the Church Office to donate in cash to our Church Office Staff Thor Bee. Your contribution is always much appreciated!
WS2 FELLOWSHIP LUNCH
This monthly communal lunch is another avenue for Charisians to bless each other. You can do so by donating towards the cost of the lunch.
Indicate your donation on the WS2 Fellowship Lunch Offering form posted on the [WS2] notice board and state the reason that you wish to be printed in the Sunday bulletin as acknowledgement. Examples are: anniversary/birthday celebration; thanksgiving; remembrance; etc.
For your donation, please use the church’s tithing envelope (available at the entrance of the Sanctuary), indicate “WS2 Fellowship Lunch Offering” and drop it into the offering bag or give it directly to the church office. Thank you for your blessings!
SKILL TRAINING AND CHRISTIAN EDUCATION SUBSIDY
LCEC has approved a subsidy scheme to encourage members to upgrade their skills and Christian knowledge so as to serve God better. Application Form is available from the church office. Should you have any feedback on this scheme or any need for clarification, please speak to our Pastors or any LCEC members.
VOLUNTEERS FOR EMERGENCIES ON SUNDAYS
(During hours of worship)
We are putting together a list of worshippers who can provide medical assistance in an emergency, such as doctors, dentists, nurses, civil defence personnel and those certified to provide first-aid and/or CPR. Please call church office (O: 63445750) with your full name and designation, and the service you attend.
We will collate the names and phone numbers and put one list in the office and another in the ushers’ cupboard in our Sanctuary. Thanks for coming forward to volunteer your service.
