RISE AGAINST HUNGER: We are excited to once again partner with this amazing organization, which wants to end world hunger by 2030, this March!  We are collecting monetary donations which will cover the cost of the meals which we will pack on March 7th.  The more $ we raise, the more meals we can pack!  Let’s make this our biggest year yet!  Contact our church office for more information.
