Fall Stewardship Campaign

October 2021

During October we will have the opportunity to express our faith and share God's abundant blessings by showing our extravagant generosity by making a pledge to the 2022 general fund budget. We will also take steps to conclude our capital campaign and to make sure all of the church renovations which have recently been completed are fully funded. You will be hearing more about these efforts in the coming weeks.
