GIVING THEM A GIFT OF LOVE
Pastor Kevin and Gerda have dedicated the last 7 years (and beyond) to serving the Lord with generous, caring hearts. We would like to express our deepest gratitude by collecting funds for a love gift so that we can bless them in their retirement. Shhhh... they don't know this is coming.
If you would like to participate, our Elder Chair, Johnny Chan Kin, will be collecting the funds and giving them to Pastor Kevin and Gerda at their Retirement Party. Please do one of the following:
- Cheque/Cash: Make the cheque out to Johnny Chan Kin. Put the cheque or cash in an envelope addressed to "Johnny Chan Kin re: retirement gift".
- Johnny will be available to collect gifts on Sunday mornings
- You can drop the envelope off in the dropbox located outside by the office doors
- If you prefer to mail a cheque to the church, please clearly address the envelope for "c/o Johnny Chan Kin, Unionville Alliance Church, 4898 16th Ave, Markham ON, L3R 0K6"
- E-transfer: Send the e-transfer to Johnny Chan Kin's email: email@example.com; put in the memo that it's for "Kevin's retirement gift".
Please note that this love gift is NOT considered an offering or charitable donation. It is not tax receiptable and will not be processed by Unionville Alliance Church. It is a direct gift from you to Pastor Kevin.
