Not quite like a First Sunday Luncheon, but it’s still a great way to support our show! See you there!
THE CARERING NEEDS YOUR HELP
Helpers and cookie-bakers are needed to assist the CareRing with former MMUUS member Carolyn Temple’s memorial service reception on Saturday, June 25th. If you are able to help out, please email Peggy Ryfun at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEDGE AND OTHER CONTRIBUTION STATEMENTS COMING SOON!
You will soon receive a statement in the mail summarizing your current status on Operating Fund and Capital Campaign pledges, as well as any other contributions you’ve made to May Memorial. Please take time to review your statement!!! This is the first time statements have been generated by ICON, our new church management software, so it’s important that you check your statement for accuracy. That way we can correct any problems or identify any other issues as soon as possible.
Please Note: Contributions made before December 31, 2015 will appear as a single lump sum that was transferred into ICON from the old accounting system. It is possible to manually retrieve a breakdown of individual contributions comprising that lump sum, but the breakdown will NOT show up in the new ICON statements. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact Jane Fagerland at email@example.com.
