Three times a year we distribute a newsletter and our schedule for the
following quarter. We have two methods of delivering our newsletters
and schedules: email notice and US mail. We prefer to send you an
email notice when each quarter when the new schedule is available.
It contains a link to the schedule on our website which you can
print for yourself and return anytime to get a new copy or check for
changes. If you are on our email list, you will also get
occasional updates if we have a change or special notice. If you do not
have access to email or a printer or find
this inconvenient we are willing to print our schedule and send it by
US mail for those that live in the local area. If you send us
email to join, please indicate which method of delivery you are
However, if you live too far away to attend our services and are simply
interested seeing the list of our services, we ask that you do that here
on our website or request to be added to our email notice list rather than asking us to mail copies to you.
There are a variety of expenses we must meet to continue our mission:
Only a fraction of these expenses can be covered by the offerings collected
at our services. The rest of our expenses must come from donations.
Many of our regularly attending members contribute monthly in addition
to offerings. Without such contributions we would not be able to
continue this service to the students of the NYC area.
St Mary's Church - In 2002-2003 we will be
meeting in St Mary's Church every week. While the rent at St Mary's is somewhat
less than our rent was at St Paul's Chapel, we hope to have access to St Paul's
again in the future. It's location on the campus of Columbia University gives us
more visibility for students and its acoustics and organ are better for our musical programs.
Advertising - we put notices on bulletin
boards on several university campuses in Manhattan and run small ads once
or twice a year in campus newspapers to help ensure that students that
might be interested in worshipping with us know about us.
Speaker travel expenses - we have guest
speakers for one meeting each month. Most of these come from the
east coast area (Boston to Washington, DC) and we must meet their train
or car expenses. But we try to include speakers from other parts
of the country occasionally and if we cannot arrange speakers who are in
the east on other business, we must occasionally pay for their plane fare.
Printing & Mailing Expenses - we
send out announcements of our services four times a year and monthly reminder cards to a
large group of interested people who live in the NYC area.
Web & Message Service - we maintain this website
and a dialup message service announcing the next week's topic and location.
We want to invite others, even those that cannot attend our services,
but who are concerned about the religious options for students of the NYC
area to help continue our mission. Help us stay in St. Paul's
Chapel and continue to serve the needs of these students from NYC colleges
and universities by joining as a contributing member
of the Forum.
Contributions should be by check payable to: Metro New York Adventist
Forum and sent to our Treasurer:
