THE CHURCH OF PHILOSOPHICAL EXPLORATION (A.K.A. COPE MINISTRIES) PRESENTS:

THE VIRTUAL WALL OF INSPIRED FELLOWSHIP

Rev. Minister Angela Smith recognizes Priest John Ball and John Wycliffe as founding fathers of the Church Of Philosophical Exploration postmortem (we use postmortem because we recognize the humanity of the dearly departed regardless of mortal coil) resulting somewhat by inspiration from the Mormon Church as strange as that may sound to some.  You may know that the Mormon Church claims Martin Luther King, Jr. as a member subsequent to his passing.  If not, that's the basis of said recognition of Priest John Ball and John Wycliffe as founding fathers of this church.  This page displays both our Founding Fathers, Founding Mother (Rev. Minister Angela Smith), all Honorary Proselytizers who choose to officially publicly disclose our fellowship, and donor recognition.  (Remind you of "Lord of the Rings"?  #MeToo)

You may have noticed the donations are out of order.  But, from this point on should be in order.  For all who've passed the basket at HEAL Mission events over the years, know we appreciate you too and that your name is likely already listed per COPE and HEAL Mission's full intentions!  Check again!  THANK YOU!  >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Also, in May, 2007 the HEAL Mission ledger showed -$27.34 after an expense of $27.45 and Rev. Angela Smith's mother (Catherine Smith) also contributes to cover when needed.  In 2009, we were hit with the SLAPP suit by UHS, Inc.  And, in April, 2010, the HEAL Mission ledger showed
-$11,671.89 (that's negative) To see current balances (9/29/20) for Rev. Smith and the church (including mission), click here.
2020 (Annual) Funding Goals Progress:

Current Total $ Received in 2020: $1191

Utilities (i.e. communication services) Bare Minimum Goal in 2020:
$1800 ($609 to go)

Sustainability (service provider availability) Reasonable Minimum Goal in 2020:
$12,750 ($11,559 to go)

Additional Services (i.e. public records requests to assist with consumer and victim advocacy at the mission, costs of venues for events) Maximum Goal in 2020: $18,205.85 ($17,014.85 to go)

  [Maximum Annual Fundraising Goal is $18,205.85 because based on 2019 data that would be one person's share of global GDP in 2019 if divided equally among entire human population in 2020.] Last Updated 11/10/20
