in maritime conference
In Maritime Conference

Last year we provided support to:

  • Christian Council for Reconciliation
  • Karing Kitchen
  • Brunswick Street

Mission

slide23
Aboriginal Peace & Friendship Project (Tatamagouche Centre)
  • Maritimes-Guatemala Breaking the Silence Network Co-ordinator
  • CQS Care Centres
  • Coverdale
slide24
Campus Ministries
  • Hospital Chaplaincies
  • Pastoral Charges
  • Transformational

ministry initiatives

slide25
We did all this

with the $335,000

provided for us

in Mission Support Grants

slide26
This Mission Support

grant money is

provided to

Maritime Conference

through your financial support of

the Mission and Service Fund.

Thank You!!!!!!

slide28
Since 1988

givings to the

Mission and Service Fund

have remained steady at

$30,000,000

slide31
That means if you gave

$100 in today’s money to the

Mission and Service Fund

slide34
$30,000,000 of today’s dollars

does not compare to the 30 Million dollars given in 1988. In fact it is only worth $18.55 Million.

Inflation has eaten away the rest.

slide35
This means that it is

harder and harder to

support the important

ministries in Maritime Conference,

Canada and the world.

slide36
We already know

that you are a

generous people

slide37
We know that

the present economic

climate is uncertain.

slide39
When organizations come

to your door asking

for donations

slide40
Please be generous

but please don’t forget

slide42
The goal for 2010

for the Mission and Service Fund is

$30,200,000.

slide43
We can only achieve

these goals if

we work together

slide44
A special project idea

from our friends in

Hamilton Conference.

slide45
What possibly can one

small dime do?

A dime buys enough gas to travel 1 kilometre. A dime might buy two pieces of penny candy.

Not much!!!!!

slide46
If every member of Maritime Conference

Redirected 10 cents of their charitable givings

To the Mission and Service Fund

Every day for a year.

slide47
That’s just ten

pennies… every day…

slide48
That would mean that

each member would

give an extra

$36.50 a year

to the

Mission and Service Fund.

slide49
That’s less than

the price of one full tank of gas

per year.

slide50
If all 85,000 plus

members of Maritime

Conference gave an

extra dime a day to

the Mission and Service Fund

slide51
Then we, in Maritime Conference, would collect an extra

$3,102,500 million dollars

in M&S money

every year.

slide52
Remember:

We are not asking you to break the bank.

We are asking you to remember the power of one dime a day.

slide54
Together we can do so much.

Pledge to give an extra dime

every day to

the Mission and Service Fund.

Rejoice!

In the difference that we

make in people’s lives!
