Blanket Sunday:

Next Sunday we will receive the Blankets+ offering. Your support provides blankets and so much more!

Provides disaster survivors with blankets, food, shelter and safe water – and later with tools, training and other resources for long-term recovery.

Brings help and hope to people in need the world over.

Empowers congregations to be a true neighbor to those in need.   Please be generous!!!


From the Bd. Of Missions

To meet our Basic Budget in April, we needed to receive $1416 ($1564 for Expanded Budget). We actually received $1144 plus, thanks to your generous Easter Offering of $891, for a total of $2035. This enabled us to pay our United Mission Basics, the Secret Place bill, and contributions to the Jail Ministry ($200) and Food for the Needy ($500). Our balance $849.
