Commitment Cards Now Needed!
The Lenten Journey Giving Guides and
Commitment Cards were mailed out on last Thursday, March 26.
If you haven’t yet returned your commitment card, please do so
when you come to celebrate on this Easter Sunday morning at Grace
Baptist Church. Or, take
time now to complete and mail your card to the Church Office in the
envelope enclosed with last week’s letter.
If you need another commitment card, please
follow this link to this week’s newsletter:
media/newsletters/Newsletter 4-01-15.pdf .
You’ll find there a copy of the Lenten Journey
Giving Guide and Commitment Card.
Simply print, complete and return this Sunday, or by mailing
to: Grace Baptist Church,
Lenten Journey, 4200 Dover Road, Richmond VA
What if I already turned in a commitment
card this past November?
Please do us the great favor of once
again completing and turning in a commitment card as part of this
Lenten emphasis, even if your pledge continues unchanged.
This will greatly aid us in having a single, current tally of
everyone’s participation in this special Lenten stewardship effort.
Church has a unique ministry and mission to offer the greater Richmond
community. You are
greatly valued for all the ways you enrich and strengthen the Grace
community of faith.
Thank you, first and foremost, for the gift
