Harvest Offering

On November 19th, after meeting our initial general fund budget need, our Elders have designated the remaining portion of our Harvest Offering to top off any savings deficiencies and begin setting aside funds for the East Entrance/Cafe Remodel Project. Our goal for this offering is $100,000. If we reach this goal, we should be able to begin the East Entrance Project in early 2018 and, Lord willing, complete the project with funds from our Spring Offering. Please begin praying about how you will give towards these goals!
