Update on Our Need Fund Project – Success!

In a matter of just a few days we have received donations totaling $2065! So our target of $2000 has been reached. I hope all of you are really encouraged by this, we certainly are. The need is met. Burden lifted from a sister in Christ who has suffered not only at the hands of an abuser but at the hands of her ex church as well. Most of you have walked that path too.

It is not our practice to ask for donations very often. The cost of operating this blog is very, very minimal. Numbers of people have plugged into Christ Reformation Church online and have contributed financially to help our small band of people here meet the typical costs of a local church. Those costs are low – our building is paid for and we focus our ministry on preaching and teaching, broadcasting live on Facebook, posting the sermons in video, audio, and pdf on Sermon Audio, and the sermon videos on Youtube. The rest of our ministry is this one right here – The blogs and publishing our books and interacting with abuse survivors and victims.

Thank you again for praying for this lady and for your donations. It is a good work you have done in Christ.

Update on our Need Fundraising Project

As you know, last Tuesday we announced a fundraising project to meet a $2000 need for an abuse survivor who we know well and can confidently attest for. The need is valid and we thank everyone who has contributed so far.

Via PayPal we have received $350 as of now, though no doubt there will be some checks mailed via the postal service which have not arrived yet.

As I promised though, I will keep you all updated on the progress.  Many thanks to you all and blessings to you in Christ.

An Opportunity to Help a Lady in Need

I’m no good at fund raising. Over the years, years ago, I have had people tell me “Pastor, you need to preach more on tithing. The giving in the church is down.” I don’t like that. I think if real Christians are made aware of genuine needs and if the Lord has provided the means for them to help, they will do so without me twisting their arm.

So, what I would like to do in this post is simply make you aware of a real need and if you can help, that is wonderful. I know full well that most of you have suffered wicked abuse and part of that abuse has been economic.

In this case, an abuse survivor, a genuine Christian who I have known for some years now, is in need. She has been ex-communicated by a “church,” she has been cheated by her abuser (now her ex thankfully), and she really is a “widow indeed” as the Bible says. I wish I were a millionaire – I would spend my days handing out and helping the oppressed. But I’m not, and neither are you.

My friend is also physically and seriously disabled, the result of all those years of evil treatment no doubt.

So, I would like to offer all of you an opportunity to help. We are trying to raise $2000 to pay a pressing bill and relieve some financial pressure from her. If you would like to help and are able to do so, you can send funds to –

  • Christ Reformation Church, 7450 Alderbrook Rd., Tillamook, Oregon  97141
  • or you can donate through Paypal – christreform@gmail.com

You can include a note to let me know that the funds are for this project.

Many blessings to you all. We look forward to the day in the New Creation when we will all “buy without money.” I will keep everyone informed as to the progress of the contributions.
