Nicholas Muzik suffered significant traumatic injuries on Tuesday while hiking in Zion National Park. Nicholas has been a part of our church family since he was a child, and it has been beautiful to see how so many of you have rallied around his family in love this week. Prayer is powerful -- and we thank God for the many answers to prayer we have already seen! Sending Scriptures and other meaningful notes via the Caring Bridge is very meaningful. I know that many have also asked about helping financially. All of these are expressions of gospel-displaying compassion, which will overflow in thanksgiving to God (2 Corinthians 9:11-15).
This Sunday we will take a special collection for a benevolence gift for the Muzik family, especially focused on helping them with the immediate costs of travel and lodging that have already arisen, and to help with other expenses that will no doubt continue to arise this month.
Simply make a check payable to Redeemer Community Church, and add "Nicholas" in the memo line of the check, and we will cut one united check to the Muzik family next week, to help them in this time of need.
Here are a few technical notes about the collection this Sunday:
- By giving through the Sunday morning collection, 100% of your gift will go to help the Muzik family, without the service fees that are inherent to giving online by credit card.
- Gifts for this collection will not show up on your end-of-year giving statement, since this kind of designated giving is not tax deductible by IRS code.
- If you are not able to give this Sunday, you may mail checks to Redeemer Community Church / PO Box 6406 / Aurora Il 60598.
Also, Grace McClusky (a Wheaton College student who has been a part of the Redeemer family during her time at Wheaton) has just set up a YouCaring page online, which we hope and pray will help the Muzik family in the months to come with the enormous costs of crisis health care. You can give at any time through this website.
Church family, thank you for continuing to shine the love of Christ in this fallen world.
