Contribution Statements for 2014 Giving
From Greg Cothren: "In the coming days contribution statements developed from our "Envelope System" will be mailed out to those who participate in this system. They will include all contributions that were given through the contribution envelopes. If there are any issues, please contact Greg Cothren 256-426-8488. Also those giving single contributions $250.00 or higher will also receive a statement (an IRS requirement). It will only include those contributions that meet that criteria, it will not represent all your contributions for the year....if you would like to have a complete statement of your giving, please join the envelope system for 2015."

I will leave you with some quotes that were titled “Real life stories that cause one to stop and think.”
Today, as my father, three brothers, and two sisters stood around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent words before she died. She simply said, “I feel so loved right now. We should have gotten together like this more often.”
Today I kissed my dad on the forehead as he passed away in a small hospital bed. About 5 seconds after he passed, I realized it was the first time I had given him a kiss since I was a little boy.
Have a good day.
