BAUUC has been involved with the FINCA Micro-Lending Program for over two decades. FINCA works to alleviate poverty in countries around the world by helping people build assets, create jobs and raise their standard of living. The program provides socially responsible financial services in underserved and low-income communities in 23 countries. On Sunday November 18, we will have a special Share the Plate Offering, with half of all cash and half of all checks marked with “share the plate” going to FINCA. Following the 11:00am service that morning, please plan to join us for an All-Church Lunch to raise funds to donate to FINCA. Our kitchen crew will be preparing a special meal. Following the meal, we’ll have a short presentation about the incredible work of FINCA in places like Guatemala to make the lives of people better. There will also be some special items for sale to support FINCA. Please plan to join us on November 18.
