November 2 – 8

Giving Statements Coming Soon:  Giving Statements for January through October are being sent out.  Again we will be sending them to most households by email!  Just in case you might think it is yet another SPAM email, here is what the email will look like:

      From: Church of the Holy Spirit <>

     Subject: Church of the Holy Spirit Giving Statement

     Reply-To: Church of the Holy Spirit <>

Attached, you will find your giving statement from Church of the Holy Spirit for 01/01/2019 to 01/28/2019. Please retain this for tax purposes. The email is sent only to the person in the household designated “primary” in our database.  So make sure you check everyone’s email!  Those of you who have been getting the Together newsletter by traditional mail will receive your Giving Statements by traditional mail instead of by email.
