For our Donors and all our Congregation attenders/members:
We are preparing to send end of the year Financial Statements to each of you by this weekend. If you have a new address or just want to be sure we have the accurate mailing address that you prefer, please feel free to Private Message us with the information. Or email to MidCityNaz@aol.com.
You have been so good to us. We want to be sure to get this information to you and assist in providing all information you need for tax preparations when you are ready to do so!
We are deeply moved and profoundly grateful for the wide participation in the fundraiser that allowed us to hire the professionals that are necessary when dealing with asbestos that was in our sanctuary ceiling. As often happens in construction projects, it has taken longer than originally estimated by our congtrctors due to finding deeper needs as they uncovered some areas. It has been a big project ~ possibly even a giant one!
Today we’ve been told that ceilings are mostly cleaned, resurfaced, painted and retextured! They are moving on to the painting of the walls before new carpet can be installed. The new seats will be delivered within a few days of our placing a phone call to tell the vendor when we are ready.
More details will be in the letter coming with your financial statement. If you could please let us know if you have any concerns about mailing — or if you do not receive them by the middle of next week, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your kindness and generosity has moved us profoundly as well as encouraged and inspired us to continue on in the work that God has led us to do. You have touched our lives when you have been present with us ~ and any time you have visited or responded to major and significant needs such as this has been. Every greeting from you is a blessing.
As always, let us remember one another whenever we gather at the Lord’s Table. We are one as we gather there.
May we also continue to:
Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers.
Whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for those of the family of faith.

Well friends, we are within $700 of meeting goal! The finish line is so close! So now, one more time, we are asking for help. Would you give us one more Facebook share or send out one more email to people who might want to help?
The new sanctuary will be such a blessing to our body of believers. And we have each of you to thank, though words could never convey the depth of our gratitude!

October 2016 ~ pre-renovation
Mid-City needs your help. The ceiling of the church’s main sanctuary has tested positive for asbestos, which can cause different types of lung cancers if it is dislodged and inhaled over long periods of time. Removing the asbestos requires renovation of the entire space, and we need to raise $80,000 to do this.
Mid-City has always been rich in people, rather than money. It relies heavily on volunteers; its pastoral staff does not receive full salaries; so that our limited financial resources can be poured back into the works of mercy. We hope you will be able to give financially as a continuing part of Mid-City’s mission. With your gift—whether it is $5, $20, or $100 or more—we will be able to continue serving the poor and displaced and create a safe space for our French Creole-, Khmer-, Nuer-, Samoan-, Spanish-, Swahili-, and English-speaking congregations.
