2021 Pledge cards went out to all of our current members a few weeks ago. 44 Cards have been returned. $231,638 has been pledged toward 2021 operations and $13,994 towards our building loan repayment. Thank you to everyone who has pledged.

If you have not yet returned your card, please do so soon! We are working on a 2021 budget, and are always able to plan better when we have a good idea of what the pledges will look like.

Let us with gladness present the offering and oblations of our life and labor to the Lord.
