The Bishop Whittemore Foundation of the Diocese of Western Michigan strengthens our ability to be a visible presence in our communities and the world based on the generosity of the Foundation. Bishop Hougland has stated that the Foundation has “granted funds for renovation, repair, and ministry work for parishes in the diocese including an amount of $85,000 in 2016,” as an example. This Sunday (May 7th), we will be asked to contribute to the Foundation for its continued good word among us. Envelopes are available on the resource tables of the church. Please consider being as generous as you are able.
