SUNDAYS FEBRUARY 18 – APRIL 1
During Lent at Argyle UMC, we are on a “Journey to the Cross” and we invite you join us as we offer ourselves and our donations to local and global ministries so God may transform the world through the steps we take in generosity and service.
Each week, we invite you to donate towards the weekly mission. Each week in our journey, we will increase our donation by $1 or more and share the impact of this ministry.
In 2017, you raised $10,853 that impacted college students, the local food bank, our widows & widowers, the youth mission trips, our First Responders, UP Ministry, and Rise Against Hunger. You can contribute through Lenten offerings during church services, or with cash, check or electronic giving. Put “Lenten Offerings” in Note.
