Subject: Pacesetter Thank You
Dear MCC Leader:
As an expression of our appreciation
to you for your participation in the 2012 Easter Offering
for Global Justice Campaign, our staff has created a
special Pacesetter's logo. As a 2012 Pacesetter
church, you are free to use this logo as you see fit
-- on your church's website, in your e-mail communications,
in your weekly worship folder or church newsletter, etc. We
hope you'll find this to be a helpful way to remind your
congregants and your community of your leadership role
on behalf of social justice issues, in general, and the
new Global Justice Institute, in particular.
Again, our warm and heartfelt
thanks to you and your congregation for "setting
the pace" for our international global justice ministries. On
behalf of the MCC leadership and staff, please be assured
of our continued prayers for you and your vital ministry.
In the Spirit of Jesus,
Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson
