One of the great ministry advantages we have today is the ability to mass produce materials. At our church, we are continually putting together many different kinds of ministry materials such as: devotional booklets, discipleship booklets, tracts, posters, leaflets, special meeting leaflets, forms, sermon notes, bulletins, newsletters, and many other kinds of literature.
In order to keep up with the printing, we go through alot of ink and alot of paper every week. If you don’t believe me just ask Alan Campbell who worked with us this summer or Sam Quinn who spends alot of time each week printing material. At the moment we have an HP 3600 Colour LaserJet which is a good machine but limited in it’s ability and not the most economic when printing large quantities.
We are in the process or purchasing a much more powerful printer, a second hand Panasonic DP-C322. The Panasonic is going to cost us £1800 ($2730) initially but will be much cheaper to run on a daily basis at only £0.049 ($0.075) per colour copy and £0.0049 ($0.0075) per black copy. The machine will also be able to print, scan, copy, and fax larger sizes. It will stable booklets for us and will print on both sides automatically. This printer will enable us to do our existing work more efficiently and allow us to increase the amount of tracts and literature that we print on a regular basis.
So far, we have had £955 ($1458) given toward the cost of the printer. We are going to need to finalise the purchase of this printer in the next several weeks. Would you pray about giving toward this project. We still lack £845 ($1272). If you would like to give, you can send your gift to:
