Support Us

Outside of_Church

 

 

Because, at this point, we are a small congregation, we depend upon the gifts of our former members and friends to help us finance our ministry.  Certainly our current members provide the bulk of our giving--and are indeed very generous!--but we need outside assistance in order to carry out the work we believe God has called us to do.

 

Can you help?  Ongoing or one-time gifts are greatly appreciated--and needed!  Here are some options for supporting us...

  • Checks can be payable to Peace Lutheran Church and mailed to us at 105 Svenson Street, Holbrook, AZ 86025
  • Arrangements can be made for automatic deductions from your checking or savings account with direct deposits to our checking account here at Peace.  Contact us for details concerning how this can be done.
  • Use the convenient PayPal system above or below.  Just click the button and go!  (This part is still under development.)

Are you a part of Thrivent Financial?  If so, this wonderful financial planning organization gives away millions of dollars annually to various Lutheran ministries worldwide.  Peace Lutheran is the recipient of several thousand dollars of benevolent money from Thrivent annually, all because investors have cited Peace to be their "Choice Dollars" recipient.  If you're a Thrivent member and haven't designated any ministry to receive your "Choice Dollars" money, we'd be grateful to receive these funds. Also, each Thrivent member has one or two "Action Team Projects" which can be done annually.  With each project comes a $250 VISA gift card to assist in the expenses of that project, which can be a fundraiser (e.g. Youth For Christ car wash) or service in nature (e.g. our Fall Work Day).  Last year we engaged in 29 Action Team Projects, totalling $7,250 of "seed money," benefitting both our congregation and many outside efforts (e.g. our local library).  If you're not a Thrivent member, we'd encourage you to contact these good folks for assistance in stewarding the resources God has given you.  Paul Meier is our local Thrivent representative and can be reached in nearby Lakeside at 928-367-6682, toll free at 800-795-3718 or paul.meier@thrivent.com.)

 

Each year over the Veterans Day weekend in November we sponsor a Christmas Bazaar.  Since beginning in 2013, we've seen our sales grow from $5,000 to last year nearly $12,000.  After we tithe our income (given to the Bread of Life Mission), the remainder of the funds go into our checking account which helps us end the year "in the black."  Our Bazaar is a lot of work but a lot of fun, too!  This year's Christmas Bazaar will be November 8-10 with setup November 5-7.   Might you have something you could contribute to this sale?  Rummage items, particularly furniture and other "big ticket" items, are welcome and can be stored here until the sale date.  (We even have friends in the Phoenix area who will pick up your contributions!)  Handcrafted items for the Bazaar (woodworking, craft and sewing products, artwork, jewelry, etc.) are especially needed and, on the days of the Bazaar, homebaked goods.  In addition to sale items, we'll need extra help those days and  especially during the set-up days just prior.  We hope to have a number of friends come to help us.  Might that be you?  Contact Pastor Jeff to volunteer or if you have questions.  -  And last year, we invited other non-profit organizations to come and set up a booth of their own, selling holiday-related items for their own treasuries--and five organizations responded.  What fun it was to share the crowd and share the wealth with these good neighbors!  We do this again!
