Do You Know Magdalena?

She's a 7-year-old girl in Tanzania, and our Sunday School Missions Mile of Pennies has been supporting her since 2009. We need your pennies.  Click Here  to see how easy it is to help.

You Can Help!

You can make an important contribution to our church mission by praying for and contributing to these needs:

  • We have two altar flower arrangements every Sunday which can be sponsored in honor or memory or celebration of someone or something special in your life. Please contribute $25 for one or $45 for both.
  • All year long we are grateful for your donations of paper goods and related items for the kitchen & bathrooms at the church, including paper towels, tissues, toilet paper, paper plates, coffee cups, drinking cups, plastic utensils, even coffee.  You can save your receipt and turn it in to the office to receive credit on your annual statement of giving for tax purposes.
  • Prayer list changes can be written on the copy from your bulletin and placed in the offering plate (we update the list every week).

Thank you for helping!
