GOAL OF $30,000 / December 1 – 31, 2021

The FOR THE ONE Special Christmas Offering is an opportunity for us to make a difference in the lives of others on a local, national and global level. This special offering is 100% mission and ministry focused and does not go to the normal operating costs of our church. Our goal is $30,000 so that we can fully fund the ministry initiatives of this special offering.

Please know that your generosity will make a genuine difference in the lives of people in our community, our country and across the world. You can check out the ministry initiatives below and if you’d like to be a part of this, you can also give today.
