WESLEY TOWER BANK CONVERSION

Since January 2007, we have been collecting loose change in our Wesley Tower Banks.  To date, we have received a total of $12,274.02.  This funding has been used to repay the funds we borrowed from our own church accounts when building the Tower.

We believe it's time for a change!  So, effective immediately, our church banks will be set out on communion Sundays and the ingathering of funds will be deposited in our Missions account.  This will help our church continue the great work it is doing in our community.  We appreciate your generous donations!
