We handle Contributions according to the IRS

Charitable Gift Timing - When donors make gifts near the end of the year, the question often arises: “Is my gift deductible this year?” A donor’s charitable deduction, assuming deductions are itemized, depends on various factors. Quick reference: If you want to count your contribution/donation on your 2010 taxes, make sure it is postmarked by December 31, 2010 on the envelope or hand delivered to the church office before noon December 30, 2010.

 

The December WMU Sandwich Bible Study has been changed to Monday, January 3, 12 noon at the church.  Come in on the Bailey Court side where the ramp is.  Dessert will be provided.
