The Bishop’s Appeal

Bishops Appeal - 2015

 

Folks, the CCFM needs your financial support. We are at a cross roads with the ministry and are seeking individuals like yourself to help us to continue to grow and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ around our Nation and the World. We are very aware that times are financially tough on most everyone and so it is, also on the CCFM as well.

We have been growing steadfastly for almost 7 years now. And gone through many changes as we have tried to grow and help others with what we do. We are unique in many aspects of our ministry work, unlike many other churches and ministries. One of our policies is to do that which other churches and organizations are not doing within the communities where the CCFM functions.

As many of you know none of our ministries or churches accept tithes from anyone. We work with the Poor, Homeless, Addicted, Mentally ill, the Disabled and the Elderly as well as the general communities in which we serve the Lords flock. And since we work with the poorest of our nation and world, we are finding it a major struggle to continue in the areas of administration and in supporting the most needy with aid of all types. Such as Bibles, Education equipment and materials, Food, Clothes, Medical supply’s and equipment. To name but a few.

We also know that there are many organizations that work in these areas that are also seeking your assistance. We know that this can be burdensome and taxing to say the least. Though I have asked in the past for your support on a number of programs, we have yet to receive any.

So I am asking now for you to pray on this matter and find it in your heart as God leads you to send us a love offering or even help us with a monthly contribution if you can and are will to do so.

In the almost 7 years of operating, we have received less than $1000.00 USD and though it is greatly appreciated and we truly did stretch it as far as it would go, it is not enough. Yet by our Lord’s Grace, we have been able to continue to work hard for you and expand the ministry.

Providing as much as we can when and where we can. Each of our clergy invest their own personal incomes to their ministries just as the CCFM does here at the global hq.

However, I stated, we are at a cross roads. We can continue to progress as we are or with your financial help and support, we can move onto the next phase and reach out and do so much more for so many more, here at home in our own nation and around the world.

We have made to process as easy as we can. That being, go to our Official Website and at the bottom of the Home Page, click on the Donate Button and you will be able to, Place your Love Offering through our Secure PayPal Account. It’s that easy. (www.celticcrossministry.com)

I wish to thank you for your time in reading this plea for your help and no matter what your decision, we truly do love and appreciate you and your interest in what we do and what we try to do for others.

May our Lord bless you abundantly and always keep you safe and healthy.

Sincerely IHS and yours,
