Family Thank Offering, Dedication July 1, 2018

The Family Thank Offering (FTO) is one of the mission projects of our Church of the Holy Cross Women’s Fellow-ship and the Woman’s Board of Missions (WBM) for the Pacific Islands. 

As reported in the April 2018 of The Morning Star (the mission publication of the WBM) the Family Thank Offering Committee prayerfully and judiciously reviews requests for emergency financial assistance and approves one-time mission grants to meet a special need of individuals or families.  Requests must be submitted to the WBM offices by a pastor or church leader, community advocate, or WBM member.  All requests are authenticated by the Executive Director and require supporting documentation prior to re-view by the Family Thank Offering Commit-tee.

In the WBM annual report for July 2017 – June 2018, it was stated that the FTO Committee granted 15 one-time mission grants totaling $6,725.00.  Please go to our Church of the Holy Cross’ newsletter, The Messenger (06/20/2018), for a sampling of grants made possible by past Family Thank Offerings.

Dedication of our offerings will be on Sunday, July 1st, 2018. An FTO envelope is enclosed in today’s MESSENGER.  Checks should be made out to: Church of the Holy Cross with the notation -Family Thank Offering.  All monies received will be forwarded to the Women’s Board of Missions.
