Offerings and Tithes

We would like to remind you about how important it is to keep up with your tithes and offerings.  The past year has taught us a lot about preparing for the unexpected. There may be needs that arise in the next few months that will lead us to unique ministry opportunities’ and our giving helps fulfil that mission and meet the needs of both those within and outside the congregation.  There are 3 ways you can help with this:

The national site ends Oct. 2, but there is still work to finish. Using local volunteers, there will be a last push to finish up through October. Our leadership, Rex Miller and Sammy & Phil Deacon, need our support as much as ever.
