Season of Giving

As we approach the holiday season, here are a few ways our church reaches out to our community and the world! Consider getting involved and contributing to our Season of Giving.

Angel Tree
As Covid-19 continues to affect many ministries, Angel Tree, strives to continue its mission to reach families of prisoners at Christmas. This may look different this year. As opportunities to help arise, we will list them here.

Prisoner Packets
