Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,


I extend warm greetings to you, hoping this letter finds you well. I am writing to you as the pastor of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, seeking your support in a matter of urgency that has significant implications for our congregation.


As we entered the winter season, our sanctuary faced a critical issue that demands immediate attention—the malfunctioning of multiple heaters. This unfortunate circumstance has left our members struggling with the cold during worship services, affecting their overall experience and well-being.


The adverse impact of the cold weather on our congregants' comfort and health has prompted us to take swift action. To address this situation, we have identified the need to replace the broken heaters, with each unit costing $2200. However, the financial burden exceeds our church's current capacity, requiring external assistance.


We are reaching out to request your support in raising the funds needed for the heater replacements. Your contribution will go a long way in restoring the warmth and comfort of our sacred space, ensuring that our congregation can worship without the hindrance of chilly temperatures.


We have set a deadline of 30 days, given the urgency of the matter. Your prompt response and generous contribution within this timeframe will make a significant difference in our ability to address this pressing issue effectively.


To contribute, you can visit our website for online donations, mail a donation to the church, or contact our office at 510-832-0969 for further assistance.


We understand the demands on your resources and appreciate any support you can provide, whether big or small. Your commitment to the community will undoubtedly leave a lasting impact on our congregation.


Any donation made is tax-deductible. Our Employer Identification Number (EIN) is 81-5142736. This number is important for tax purposes and can be used when claiming your charitable contributions on your tax return. Thank you for supporting our mission.  Your commitment is making a positive impact, and we are grateful.




In His Service,


Thomas A. Harris, III

Pastor, Pleasant Grove Baptist Church
