We are taking a special collection for the Evergreen Mercy Fund. The fund will provide emergency assistance to church members in the following areas:

In the absence of Sunday Worship Services, we're inviting the entire church community to practice our faith in these two ways: In word and in deed.
In Luke 24:19, on the Emmaus Road, two of Jesus' early followers spoke this way about him: "Jesus of Nazareth... was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people."
The "Word Ministry" of the Church consists of gospel proclamation. We do this during Sunday worship services in the teaching of the Scriptures, as well as in smaller group settings when we gather together and encourage one another.
Jesus did not only go about proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom; he also healed the sick and oppressed. Walking in-step with Him, we're to share the love of God by meeting the tangible needs of brothers and sisters in our faith community.
Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, we've seen huge economic shifts across our country. The unemployment rate in America is at an all time high, and our community isn't an exception. Each of us likely knows someone who has lost work or seen an economic downturn.
If you know anybody in our church who will be unable to pay for their housing, utilities, food or transportation, please reach out to the church and nominate this person for help.
We have stimulated this fund with $2000, which has been expended. We'd ask you to kindly consider giving to the Mercy Fund. All contributions will be used for meeting the tangible needs mentioned above.
You can give online through the link in the header of our website, our via check with the memo "Mercy Fund." Checks can be mailed to P.O. Box 1020 in Anacortes. All contributions are tax deductible.
Thank you for your generosity. Please send all inquiries and nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
