Christine Chavez
for St Raphael Antiochian Orthodox Church
 THOUSAND PALMS, CA
My name is Christine Chavez.  I am a parishoner and Parish Council Chairperson for St. Raphael Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church in Thousand Palms, CA.

Our parish was formed 16 years ago and we have been at our current location for 6 years. Our parish is made up of about 20 families and we are prayerfully requesting your help with raising $70,000 towards our $265,000 bank loan on our church property.  The full $265,000 is due by Oct. 16, 2015 or we face foreclosure.  We have applied to other banks, but need to pay down the balance before we can qualify for a new loan.  We have a generous benefactor that will match any monies donated.  All donations are tax deductible. 

Fr. David Kruse, Pastor can be reached @ 760-408-6116 if you have any questions. 

Please like and share on social media and help spread the word about our appeal.  Thank you!

Praise God! Though the many generous donations and fundraising we have done, we have raised a little over $71,000! We now are in a better position to refinance our mortgage and are currently working with 2 lenders to try to make this happen by March 16, 2016 when our current loan extention is up. Thank you to all that have helped us through prayers, donations and getting our need out to others! We couldn't have gotten this far without you!

Hi Christine, I have something I want you to take a look at: dkc.energy526.com This company is helping change the lives of people all across America, people helping people. In addition, I found a way to strategically fund non-profits with a tremendous amount of success, by enrolling the non-profit in the direct line of sponsorship. My passion is funding ministries. Watch the short video. If this makes sense to you, let's get started saving your church. We do this as a team and I will help you. Note: the $429 franchise like fee has been waived until Nov. 20 ($0 enrollment fee!) (If you research consumer affairs, it is a for- profit lawyer referral site and only posts negative reviews unless you pay an enormous fee for positive posts. Reliable research is found on the company website: click on about tab, then look at: newsroom/awards/press releases/fact sheets.)
