  • Maintenance Fund Collection - The maintenance fund covers the day-to-day operational costs of our church, including:
    • -wages for cleaning, maintenance and lawn care
    • -utilities (electric/gas, phone, internet etc)
    • -general maintenance & repairs to the church building & grounds
Our church is getting older, and the annual church operating expenses now total approx. $125,000. To ensure we have sufficient funds to keep the church open and in good condition, we are again suggesting a donation of $350 per member. We know that some will give more and we appreciate that. In addition, we ask that everyone (young and old, members and friends that attend) to try to give something to support this fund and the Roanoke Church.
