DIRECTORY CHANGES AND CORRECTIONS
Roxann is working on the directory. Please give her updates.
COPYRIGHT LAW RULES
We are learning what the copyright laws are and how we display selections on screen and on Zoom. You may experience some changes in the way a worship service is prepared and what we can project. If a song or Hymn is listed on the screen but the words are not displayed, that may mean we are restricted by the copyright laws for that song. The same will be true of things that we may find on the internet that we might want to use in a worship service. Those who are preparing a worship service will need to check with Sharon Wood to confirm copyright laws for items you may want to use. Some selections may be restricted and cause you to select something different. Early worship service planning and preparation is important to include everything you may want to use in a Worship Service.
TITHES AND OFFERINGS
Please remember that church expenses continue. If you are not attending in-person please remember to support the church financially. Mary Reichenbach, the Congregation’s Financial Officer has indicated that contributions can be mailed to the church (7842 Mission Road, Prairie Village, KS 66208), or you can sign up for eTithing on the World Church website https://www.cofchrist.org/etithing). Any of these options will enable you to continue your regular contributions.
If you use the eTithing site, select the United States link and then scroll down to Mission Road Community of Christ. When you click on that page, there will be an option in the upper right-hand corner to ’sign up’ to create your account and enter either your bank account information for direct debit or a credit card to charge your contribution, or ’sign in’ if you have already set up your account. You may also choose a one-time contribution or a continuing contribution. Most of the contribution options on our tithing envelopes are available on the Mission Road eTithing page. If you have additional questions about electronic contributions, please contact Mary.
