The Final Total

Remember how I told you all that our final total for our ReThinking Christmas offering was in...well I forgot to tell you the total!!  It is...$29,061.00

I know, for real!  The kids brought in almost $1000.00 alone.  The Ridge was able to help build 3 wells in Ethiopia, and we were able to give a significant amount to the Bread of Healing in downtown Milwaukee.  This is so exciting for our church!  I am so grateful to all the people and families that literally sacrificed gifts and their own presents to help others.  Our largest gift was $3000.00, so we know everyone truly sacrificed.  What a great way to start off 2010. 

Hope you all are having a great week so far, come back tomorrow because Molly has a BIG announcement for you all!!

That is amazing, Kate! Just think, if every church would do that, we really could change the world and solve many problems! And really, I bet no one will ever miss those few extra gifts!
