I got this email in my inbox, apparently the Church has some financial problems :
"August 1, 2012
"Dear Members, Friends and Well Wishers
"I begin this letter giving praise and thanks to God Almighty for His Son
our Lord and savior Jesus Christ
And the anointed sound of Saint John Will-i-am Coltrane.
"You are receiving this communication not to alarm you but to inform the
members and community of the financial state of the church and to give you
the opportunity to help and assist in stabilizing and securing our residency
at 1286 Fillmore St. where the Saint John Coltrane AOC is housed.
We are challenged to meet the demand letter dated July 5th from West Bay
Conference Center who holds our lease to pay the outstanding balance of
$4,750.00 and make the August lease payment of $1,600.00 on or before August
10th, which makes a total of $6,350.00. The invitation extended in this
letter is to all who see the value and the worth of this work and would feel
moved to support its continual growth and prosperity.
We are calling first for free will offerings or donations which are tax
deductible with the option to make a committal pledge monthly quarterly or
yearly. Your immediate response is necessary due to the time sensitivity of
this matter. Other ways of being counted among those to whom we are
thankful God is using is to make a reasonable donation for prayer cloths
(T-shirts) Icon cards and the book Coltrane Speaks from our website
