NEW OFFERING ENVELOPES:

New Offering Envelopes available

The current offering envelopes run out at the end of this month. It seems that many who perhaps used the envelope system previously are now using electronic transfers, which is to be encouraged.

However, if your preference is to use cash, new sets of envelopes are now available to enable you to do so in a safe manner.

Sets of envelopes will be available for collection from church this week. If required delivery of envelope sets, or collection of envelopes containing offering can be arranged.   Please email Heather: secretary@hobartbaptist.org.au to make arrangements.
