Cinnamon and Caramel Roll Sunday
Thank you!
         Huge thanks to everyone who came out and supported my confirmation, ‘Serving Others’ project last Sunday. Your generosity was incredible! Thanks to your offerings we raised almost $1000 for Jim & Carol Brown, Living Water’s medical missionaries to Cameroon and partners in ministry since 2008.  
       With deep gratitude, Noah Vought
