Dear Andover Family,
Thank you for all of your support of the mission and ministry of our Andover community and First Church. You are a light in this area of Lexington and for many, many miles beyond.
As the end of year approaches, we want to give an update on giving to our 2017 budget. As of today, we need $52,202 to meet our year-end budget goal. We feel it is important to be open about this figure, so the target is clear. As we say frequently, December is historically our strongest giving month, and we expect that pattern to hold this year as well. With 2 Sundays still to go, you can make contributions in the offering plate as usual. For your convenience, the Finance Office at 318 S. Mill St. will be open some extra hours next week as well: 8:30-5:30 on Wednesday, December 27-Friday, December 29; 1:00-5:30 on Saturday, December 30 and Sunday, December 31. If you have questions, you can reach the finance team by phone at 859-233-0545 or by email at email@example.com. Executive Pastor Chad Foster can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We deeply appreciate the faith and sacrifice that all gifts represent and the encouragement you are!
Grace and peace,
