If you know of a need in our congregation, please tell us about it! You can write the pastors directly, or email the deacons or the office. The staff would be honored to pray for you, too, so if you have things you’d like us to pray for, you can send them to Pastor Dan.
It’s likely that folks in our congregation will face needs in the coming days, and as we hear about them, we’ll be sure to communicate with you about them. In the meantime, if you’re able, this would be a good time to contribute to our Deacon’s Fund. You can do that here.
We’ve heard from many of our partner ministries,and they do have concrete needs at this time. Please take a look at these needs and consider ways you might be able to help.
