Coming Up

Christmas Eve Offering

.

This year our Christmas Eve offering will be gifted to the people of the Lake Victoria islands of Kenya.  This remote group of islands is surrounded by water, but none of it is safe by even the lowest standard.  Water, water everywhere…but not a drop to drink.  But they do drink it.  And with each sip comes the possibility  of illness and death.  We can bring health and hope to the people of Lake Victoria.  Each filter we provide brings life and longevity to the families there.  $40 will provide one filter.

$40 = 1 family
$400 = 10 families
$4000 = 100 families
$480,000 = All families of the Lake Victoria Islands

All donations are tax deductible.  Online donations will be processed directly through Start With One and will not be reflected on PRUMC contribution statements.  Thank you!
