School Supply Drive with a Twist

In years past, we focused on collecting school supplies for Neighbors in Action and our International Friends ministry in the month of July. This year, the situation is unique, due to the pandemic and constantly evolving circumstances. To continue to support to the schools, we will make monetary donations to each ministry instead of school supplies. Each ministry will be able to purchase and distribute items that are most needed at the time of school reopening. If you have participated in our School Supply Drive in the past and would like to this year, you may donate to Missions and designate gift with “School Supplies” in the memo.  For more information, contact Paula Niz. 

 

Small Groups are Gathering

Small groups are an important part of life in a faith community. We need spaces in our lives where we can ask difficult questions, share life’s joys and challenges, and grow more deeply in our faith. These groups gather to encourage one another on this journey we call life. Whether it be a Bible study, life group, prayer hour, or just hanging out, we strive and encourage you to joining one of these communities. Get Connected with a Group Today
