What is the Donation for?
Even though the Community office and the Church are closed in order to observe the precautionary measures put forward by the government, we must continue respecting our financial obligations, Teachers’ salaries, maintenance of the premises, mortgage payments, heating and other necessities. Needless to specify that our revenues during these extraordinary times are non existent.
We appeal to your love for our church and community, to continue supporting them, so that we may be able to meet our operational expenses and ensure the uninterrupted function of our services.
You may also communicate with us by mail at email@example.com
