TRUSTEE BOARD NEWS
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.
