  • 100 X 10 Campaign

    Just mark your checks "100x10". If you want to give cash you may use the envelope in the pew and mark it "100x10". If you would like the Treasurer to track your giving on your quarterly contribution statement be sure to include your Advent contribution account number, which is the number on your preprinted Advent envelope.
    All contributions received with the "100x10" notation will be deposited directly in the Repair and Replacement Fund.
