During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Representative Text

Teach me how to do my duty,
In the service of the Lord.
Then when time with me is over,
I'll receive the great reward.
And with Jesus Christ, my Savior,
I shall live in endless day.
Where my sorrows and my toiling
Shall be banished far away.
