As is customary for retiring pastors, the church family is invited to make a love gift to Rev. Jeff O’Grady in advance of his retirement celebration on Sunday, April 25. A minimum desired amount has been established, and the Foundation of SMCC is receiving gifts toward that goal. There are two ways for you to contribute to this gift of appreciation for Jeff and Lynn’s faithful years of ministry at SMCC:
Option 1: Submit a contribution to the church office labeled “Attention Skip Ober Miller/O’Grady Love Gift.” Checks should be made out directly to "Rev. Jeff O’Grady." Please note that these will not be received and deposited by the O’Gradys until the end of April. These gifts will be tax free for the O’Gradys, but not tax-deductible for the donor.
Option 2: To donate anonymously, please do so through The Foundation of SMCC. Checks can be made payable to “The Foundation of SMCC” with “O’Grady Love Gift” in the memo line. These contributions are tax-deductible for the donor, but are a taxable gift for Rev. O’Grady. Following all submissions, The Foundation will ensure the minimum desired amount for the Love Gift is met.
If you have questions about any specifics related to the Love Gift, please contact Skip Ober Miller or Victoria Smith.
