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.
Please contact the church office for enquiries.
SUNDAY REFRESHMENT OFFERING
If you have enjoyed the refreshment provided 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, please put your name down on the Sunday Refreshment Offering Form posted on the [Church Office] notice board.
Kindly forward your cheque/cash to Thor Bee. This is a purely voluntary offering and refreshment will continue to be provided every Sunday even if no donation is forthcoming. However 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 (placed at the pews), 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.
