2. ADVENTIST GIVING
We are now officially signed up to accept online tithe and offerings through the Adventist Giving website! The link is on our church website under “Give” – http://yorbalindasda.org/give. All you have to do is register for an account and you can get started at any time. Our church cannot run without your generosity and support! As Pastor Robin and Dean have been announcing, due to lower than anticipated donation income over the first 3 quarters of the year, we’re trying to make up a 40% budget deficit (particularly for Church Growth and Conference Tithe) in the last quarter (next 3 months). YLSDA needs our help, and now we can contribute online… so thank you in advance! Please contact Michelle Park (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
