YEAR-END GIFTS – BY DECEMBER 31
Because Christmas falls on a Sunday this year (the Community Center will be closed and we will not have a service that day), we are asking everyone to consider this unique circumstance as you pray about your year-end giving to Emmanuel. Please remember that if you would like to receive a 2016 tax deduction on your offering, it must be received or postmarked by December 31.
