As is OSLC’s tradition at the Thanksgiving Tuesday service (November 22 at 7pm), the offering is designated to the Pastors’ Emergency Assistance Fund to help those in our community who have fallen on hard times. Since the world turned upside down in 2020, almost all of the funds have been used to supply $20 gas cards to 20 needy Fauquier residents each month who come to the church and request them. Usually, the supply is exhausted within the first week of each month! Even though we all know how far one can travel on $20 worth of gas, it is heartwarming to see the gratitude the recipients exhibit. If you wish to help our neighbors during these economically trying times, please give as the offering plate is passed at the “Thanksgiving Service” or online at your convenience.
