Million Dollar Sunday
Today is Million Dollar Sunday! We are taking up a special collection for EEM to provide Bibles all over Eastern Europe and beyond. Since 1961 EEM has been providing Bibles and this year we continue to have an opportunity to share true freedom only experienced through knowing Jesus. Your partnership in the Million Dollar Sunday fundraising campaign will transform lives as freedom in Christ and His love are proclaimed in over 20 languages. God is inviting us to get in on what He is doing. Let’s make the best of this amazing opportunity!
You can donate with cash or check now or online at milliondollarsunday.org/give.
If you are contributing by check, please make “Mountainside Church of Christ” the payee and write EEM in the memo. If you forgot your special contribution, don’t worry, Mountainside will be accepting EEM checks for the next several weeks.
