A message from the desk of the Pastor: The Mortgage Liquidation Campaign is still in progress! We are asking that all members and friends stand with us as we liquidate our mortgage by sowing an offering of $1000, $750, $500 or any amount to support the Kingdom of God. This giving is over and above our normal tithes and offering so please indicate mortgage liquidation on your envelopes. Thank you for partnering with us in this effort and thank you to all who have given toward our goal!
