Dear MCC Friend:

 

Here’s a question for you today:

 

Has your congregation become a 2011 Fellowship Sunday Pacesetter Church?

 

You can check the list in the left-hand column to see if your church has signed up.

 

If your church is not yet listed, I am extending a warm invitation today for your congregation to become a 2011 Fellowship Sunday Pacesetter Church!

 

Here’s how to participate:

 

1.     2011 Pacesetter Churches agree to receive a special,

voluntary offering as part of our denomination’s 43rd anniversary in October on a Sunday of your choosing. These offerings will support the important work of MCC’s International Task Force and strengthen MCC’s growing international ministry for decades to come.

 

2.     Simply write to me and let me know

your church will participate in the 2011 Fellowship Sunday Offering Campaign.

 

3.     When you write, be sure to include your church’s name

and location, your pastor’s name, and the date you will receive your special Fellowship Sunday Offering.

 

4.     As soon as I hear from you, I’ll add your church and

pastor to our 2011 Fellowship Sunday Pacesetters list — recognizing their leadership in “setting the pace” for the future of MCC’s ministry to our world.

 

______________________________________________________

 

When your church says “Yes,”

you’re taking a powerful step to invest

in the future of MCC’s ministry to our world.

______________________________________________________

 

 

Will your church participate in the 2011 Fellowship Sunday Offering Campaign by receiving a special, designated offering during October?

 

If so, I invite you to write to me and let me know your congregation will participate in this year’s 43rd anniversary campaign to support the vital work of MCC’s International Task Force.

 

May I look for your response this week?

 

Grace and peace,

 

Nancy

P.S.  Over the next several days, we’ll be posting support materials to promote your participation in the 2011 Fellowship Sunday Offering Campaign, including special anniversary prayers, a press release you can send to your local media, and a downloadable bulletin insert for your weekly worship folder. Please visit the 2011 Fellowship Sunday webpage regularly this week for these helpful materials.

 

P.P.S.  This year’s Fellowship Sunday Offering Campaign is a wonderful opportunity for MCC congregations around the globe to join hearts and hands to celebrate MCC’s 43rd anniversary during the month of October. Won’t you write to me today and tell me your congregation will observe this milestone by receiving a special, voluntary Fellowship Sunday Offering as part of your anniversary observance?

 

Remember: When you write to me, I’ll add your church to the 2011 Fellowship Sunday Pacesetters List — churches that are leading the way in support of MCC’s emerging international work.
