In 2022 we were able to give $199,000 to our community, nation, and around the world—thank you for your generosity!!
Once a year, during the month of December, we bring a special offering – one that requires sacrifice and one that builds a legacy for future generations.
This offering enables us to take a giant leap forward in fulfilling the big opportunities God has placed before us.
