From C.S. Lewis in a time of national crisis
In 1942 England feared an invasion from Hitler's armed forces. People in cities and country villages lived in a constant state of alert that bombs would start falling again. 

During those terrible years of World War II the British government enlisted C.S. Lewis, a professor at Oxford University and well known author of books for children and adults to write for newspapers and produce from his local radio station 15 minute live broadcasts that went out to the nation on BBC, to give the people encouragement and hope. 
 
A message from your finance folks: 
We recognize that in these troubled times, not everyone is able to meet their pledges. This has caused a shortfall for the church. You can make a big difference by sending even just a little more than your normal donation. Your generous sacrifice can make a big impact. Here are the ways you can help:
 
Mail a check or money order:

Use the new drop box:

to put ATTN RAE on the envelope.
Then drop it in the office door mail slot on your way to town.
 
Set up automatic payments from your bank account:
Many banks offer bill payment services and will help you set up automatic payments to the church. You can contact your local bank or go to PayPal.com to set up repetitive payments.

payment for the church, email our bookkeeper to assist you at britney@fcc-sm.org.
