On Friday, January 6, we communicated with our offering envelope provider about not yet receiving our 2023 January/February envelope packets. Our provider quickly responded by email informing us that due to supply chain issues and their inability to add employees needed, they will not be fulfilling our January/February envelope orders. They determined that if they tried to play “catchup” it would jeopardize their ability to fulfill future orders in a timely manner. Therefore they stopped the production of January/February orders. By removing that work from their schedule they are able to move forward with future orders in a timely manner. Therefore they will resume their timely deliveries of future packets starting with our March/April envelope packets that you will receive by March 1, 2023. They are deeply apologetic for this inconvenience.
If you are a regular user of offering envelopes
Here are some suggestions on how to be sure your offerings are received and correctly processed:
- Pew envelopes are available in the sanctuary, in the office, and at the information desk on Sundays. If you wish to use a pew envelope or your own envelope from home please designate which fund(s) you wish your gift to be credited. If you know it, please include your envelope number.
- If you write out a check and do not use an envelope please note in the memo line if you are giving funds to a specific fund other than the General Fund (all funds received that are not designated are credited to our General Fund).
- If you give a cash gift please include your name with your gift in addition to what fund you are supporting.
Additional giving options, including credit or debit card giving and ACH giving from your bank account, are always available.
