2021 Lenten 40-Day Giving Challenge
Each year Milwaukee Metropolitan Community Church invited our congregation to engage in our Annual Lenten Giving Challenge. This year is no different!
We once again invite YOU to be a part of this year’s 2021 Challenge!
In the past, as we have been able to this challenge in-person, we obviously are not able to have the same engagement for 2021.
You’re once again invited to join the challenge by placing a set amount in the container we have provided for you in this letter. Whether it’s a $1/day, $5/day, emptying out your pockets of your loose change, or whatever you are called to give, we invite you to place that in your containers during these forty days of Lent.
If you’re not a regular attendee or on our regular postal mail list at Milwaukee Metropolitan Community Church, and would like to partake in our challenge, you can contact the church via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Provide us with your name and mailing information and the church will be happy to send you out a Lenten 40-Day Challenge Container. You can also go directly to our giving page and make your Lenten Offering contribution there.
We also invite you in lieu of your annual Easter Flower Donation, to consider taking what you would normally give for flowers and include or use that amount as part of your entire challenge offering.
As we would normally bring our gifts and offerings to the altar on Palm Sunday, this year we invite you to turn in your offering challenge in the following ways:
- Contact the church to make safe arrangements to drop your offering/gift off in person. You can also drop your envelope through the Mail Slot. If you’re collecting loose change, we request that you exchange that for bill currency or write a check or money order.
- Use the Lenten Offering Envelope provided in this letter to send your offering via check or credit card back to the church.
- Go to our Giving page, and click on the “give-online” green icon, to make your payment online. Make sure you indicate “Lenten Giving” in the comments.
The entire Board of Directors thanks you in advance for your engagement in this year’s Lenten Offering Challenge!
