In an effort to help our mother church in Egypt, our church is proposing a completely voluntary and optional 2% (or more) monthly income donation to be devoted to helping our brothers and sisters in Egypt who are in need. This donation is indeed to be an additional offering over and above our 10% tithe and will be for one of the suffering churches in Egypt.
