Minister’s Moving Fund

Every $5.00 received will move the van an additional kilometre along the route. Envelopes are available at the back of the church giving you an opportunity to offset these moving expenses not included in the annual budget.

As of November, the moving fund has $5,230 out of an planned $8000. As shown on the map, our virtual moving van is puttering through Quebec, having now reached Saint-Pierre-de-la-Rivière-du-Sud, a distance of 1046 km out of 1600).
