The 2020 Giving Records are now available.  Please fill out the request for Giving Record and give it to Trustees Mary Thomas or Norma Edrington.

 Our church remains in need of your financial support so, when this pandemic is over, we can return to the fruitfulness God has so richly blessed us with. We're asking that unless you have been financially impacted by this crisis, you remain disciplined and obedient in your giving. You may mail in your tithes and offerings to the church, drop them in our secure mail slot located near the front door, or use Givelify. 'Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts...” - Malachi 3:10.
