“What If” we could not hold a Formal Coffee Hour?
Folks, we are sorry to inform you that this year’s formal coffee hour will not occur due to the pandemic and worries of spreading the COVID virus. That being said, there is still a way to participate in a formal coffee hour. Grab the family and put on your Sunday best! Bake some goodies or grab them from your local bakery. Break out your best china. Pour a hot beverage of your choice, gaze upon this picture and enjoy!
Remember to keep your pinkie finger pointed out, and while you are enjoying your impromptu coffee hour, please remember the real reason for this occasion, the children of Haiti. The need for funds to feed and educate these children is greater now than ever before. It is impossible to social distance when living in the squalor of a carboard and tarp slum. Proper sanitation and clean water are only a dream, and maybe your only meal this day will come from the food program at the Father Jeri School.
The solution is educating these children to become the next generation of teachers, doctors, lawyers and leaders of this impoverished nation. The What If? Foundation, by funding the Father Jeri School, will continue to feed 1,000 children a day and educate the children of Haiti. They can only do this with the financial help from congregations like ourselves.
So, let’s make October the “What If?” month. Any donation will be a Godsend to these children. We are always held in awe by the generosity of our congregation. We know this will continue again this year. Please place your donations in the offering plate (Marked “What If?”), mail them to the church office, or make your donation online at www.whatiffoundation.org. You can also click on the “Donate” button at the top of our homepage to be directed to Paypal, where you can also make a contribution to the “What If?” Foundation. Please make out checks to the church and only put “What If?” on the memo line. On behalf of the Congregational Life Committee, the children of Haiti and the “What If?” Foundation, we wish to thank you in advance for your continued generosity! ~ Jim and Karen DeMay
