Debt Reduction Sunday

Our current building loan for the Ministry Centre works is about $228 000 with a monthly repayment of about $8800. The Board asks that you prayerfully consider making a donation (in addition to your normal giving) to help reduce this loan quicker so that it will free up capacity to undertake other work or activities that may arise. Your gift can be made electronically to DPC’s No 1 bank account (BSB: 033 389 Account No: 255191) marked ‘Debt Reduction’ or by using the marked envelopes provided last week. More envelopes are available in the foyer.
