Thank you, people of CtK for your faithful response! At Christ the King (CtK) we put benevolent giving first! “Taking care of others before ourselves," it just what we do shared one parishioner. The spiritual discipline of stewardship and caring for our neighbor is something we take seriously at CtK! Thank you for your commitment to the Ministry Spending Plan (MSP) and response to God’s blessings.
I share this thank you because we recently received a thank you letter from the Executive Director of LEAVEN (Limited Emergency Assistance Valley Ecumenical Network), Mary Parsons. Here is what the letter said:
Coretta Scott King said, “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” Her words, while spoken years ago, aptly describe the Fox Valley area today. The outpouring of support during these unprecedented times has affirmed the strength and character of our community.
Your gift of $1,105 is helping a growing number of people who need LEAVEN assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your generosity is stabilizing individuals and families who were already struggling to make ends meet before the outbreak, as well as those seeking assistance for the very first time.
Whether it’s an everyday crisis or a widespread disaster, LEAVEN is her to help. But we could not do it without donors lie you who rise to the occasion and give with your heart. As an organization, we are confident that we will look back at this difficult time with immense pride in how we individually and collectively responded.
A penned note also said, “Thank you for your generous support. Your gift gives help and hope to our neighbors in need.”
Thank you for your commitment of making a real difference in the lives of people, our neighbors, who are in need! Your faithful giving is one way the ministry of CtK is bringing God’s love to life!
