Opportunities for Service and Giving

Our goal is to raise enough money in this way ~ about $2,000 to build a house in Haiti. It is not too late to make your donation. There is a basket at the back of church to receive your donations. If you prefer. place your donation in an envelope and simply drop it in the collection.
