Dear Folks -
Over the years, those who attend the weekly gatherings of Ordinary Life make financial contributions. We have a committee of people who decide how to disburse this money.
Recently, the following disbursements were made totaling $8,000.
$1,000 Glabal Aids Interfaith Alliance
$1,000 The Methodist Children's Home in Waco, Texas
$1,000 The Women"s Home in Houston, Texas
$1,000 St. Paul's Christmas Offering
$1,000 SEARCH - the organization that works with Houston Homeless
$1,000 Emergency Aid Coalition
$1,000 Russian Children's Camp
$1,000 Amazing Place
On December 3, we donated $3,000 to the ongoing work in Bolivia that St. Paul's and Ordinary Life has been a part of for years. This was matched in a like amount by funds from Global Ministries.
We also contribute regularly to the after-school tutoring and day-care program the works with the "latch-key" children population near St. Paul's.
If anyone wants to make a tax-exempt contribution, please send your check payable to
