Connecting our giving and our hearts changes us and others. That’s God at work, and it’s why our generosity matters. As you think about the many ways in which you’ve been blessed to be a blessing we want to challenge you to consider your financial commitment to God’s Mission and Ministry in the coming year. Together, we can step more boldly into our vision of being The Connecting Church, providing hope and wholeness for all people, with specific emphasis on children, seniors and people in poverty.
Whether you make a financial commitment every year, or this is the first, please prayerfully consider how God is calling you to joyfully give in ways that change lives, including yours!

Gifts of appreciated securities (stocks, mutual funds, bonds) may also be donated to Prince of Peace, and may provide significant tax benefits to the donor. Talk with your tax advisor. Please note that gifts of appreciated securities, and particularly mutual funds, may need additional time to process and will need the attention of your financial advisor/broker well before December 22 to be sure the transfer is completed by the end of the tax year. Fax the stock donation form below to 952‐898‐9397, “Attention: Jane Victorey,” or contact Jane at 952‐898‐9313 or email@example.com.
