To Experience and Share the Love of Jesus Christ
We need $213,000 to break even for the year...
and we have 6 weeks left to do it. With your help we can make it!

This translates into $450 per church family. If each family gives $75 per week for the next six weeks, we will hit the budget by the end of the year. We will show you this thermometer gauging our progress each week. Lets pray together and shoot that red all the way to the top! We are trusting in God's provision.
