Switching to Electronic Giving Soon?
Help us reduce the cost of offering envelopes in 2020 by moving to electronic giving. If you would like to have your name removed from the offering envelope mailing list because you send your offerings in other ways, please email Kellie Bokusky by end of day on January 23, 2020. 
A popular way to give electronically is through Give + Text. Make one-time or recurring offerings by simply sending a text to 833-497-3991. It’s a convenient solution when you can’t attend services or don’t have cash or checks with you. 

We also offer Simply Giving. Please contact Ashley Pederson to request a form to setup an account.
