We are pleased to announce that in harmony with Proverbs 4: 18 which states, "...the path of the righteous is like the bright morning light That grows brighter and brighter..." we are making an adjustment to the way our future preaching work will be supported financially.
Jehovah's standards are unchanging, and in line with our adjusted understanding of Malachi 3: 8-10 we are pleased to make the following change. Beginning January 01, 2019 Kingdom Halls will discontinue the use of contribution boxes, and going forward there will be loving arrangements for all in the congregation to, " Bring the entire tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in my house..." (Mal. 3: 10)
At this time we have made arrangements for all to enroll in automatic online donations via JW.Org and your banking institution. A recommended annual amount per publisher has been already calculated by the Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses for your convenience, which can be donated on a monthly family basis. Your local elders will be giving enrollment forms to each family head. These forms should be filled out and returned to your group overseer no later than December 01, 2018.
The group overseer will keep a list of those who have not been able to meet that deadline and will kindly assist them in getting it promptly filled out with the correct options for each family's assigned donation percentage.
A total monthly contribution announcement will be made at the first mid-week meeting so those who can give more will have the opportunity to increase their voluntary monthly contribution.
We trust that this new arrangement will be a blessing to all who follow the scriptural principals involved.
Please, be assured of our warm christian love,
Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses
