2019 Year-End Gifts
There's still time to contribute to the 2019 Operating Budget. As we heard from Marcus earlier this week, we're currently looking at a ~$20,000 deficit for the year. Help us close the gap for 2019!

We're also still accepting contributions for the Christmas Eve Offering, which benefits three worthy causes: Binkley Pastor's Discretionary Fund, Al Otro Lado , and LUV . We are grateful for the $4034.00 already collected for Christmas Eve special offering.

In order for your contribution to be counted for 2019, be sure to date your check 12/31/19 and note the purpose of your contribution in the memo. As always, thank you for your generosity.
