We haven’t focused much on this due to other needs. NOW THE NEED IS URGENT – thank you for your help! Just mark ALARM on your tithe envelope.
NEW BUILDING FUND
Thank you for your continued support of our New Building Fund. We have had lots of calls upon our funds these last few weeks as we got ready for city inspection.

If you would like to help just note your donation on your Tithe envelope (located in the church pews). Remember this is the BUILDING THAT FAITH BUILT!
