End of the Year Giving

End of the Year Giving.jpg

The end of the year will be here before we know it, which means tax season is just around the corner. In order for your donations to be included in your 2017 giving statement, here are a few tips to remember with your end of the year giving:

1. All donations being mailed must be postmarked by the Post Office on or before December 31st in order to be reflected in your 2017 giving statement. If you would like to mail your year-end giving, you may mail your check to 930 25th St., Cleveland, TN 37311.

2. All donations given in church services may be given through Sunday, December 31st and still be reflected in your 2017 giving statement. 

3.    All donations given in the office must be given by December 21st as our offices will be closed December 25-January 2 in observance of the holidays.

4. If you use our mobile app or give through the website, give on or before December 27th to insure processing of your donation before the 31st. It takes a few days for Easy Tithe to process online giving using the mobile app and the website, which could result in your donation not being reflected in the Easy tithe reports we receive.

The 2017 giving statements will be mailed by January 31, 2018. If you have any questions, please call the church office for more information. Thank you for your faithful giving in 2018, we appreciate each of you and your commitment to Living Word.

Women's Encounter

Women's Encounter 2017 WEB.jpg

Women's Encounter is a weekend to get away with sisters in the Lord and encounter God together. This year's theme is identity, and we are absolutely excited about what God is planning to speak into us! Each of us have been created by God's design, with a specific purpose and identity in Him; yet, the enemy, the father of lies, is constantly trying to distort and steal that identity. Come join as as we encounter the Father together, and allow Him to uncover the areas that we have accepted the enemy's false identity in our lives, and give us healing, freedom, and true identity and purpose in exchange. 

If you signed up to attend, but have not yet received your welcome email and info sheet, contact us at lwc@thelovingchurch.com. The participants will be meeting at the church at 4:30pm on Friday to load up the cars, and will be leaving promptly at 5:00pm. If for some reason your work schedule will not allow you to ride down with the group at that time and you need to make other arrangements, make sure to contact Pastor Gaye with this information.
