Is Your Harvest Abundant?
Many are going through challenging times; your church is walking in faith continuing to send our support to missionaries and service organizations here and abroad as well as continuing to provide support to our staff.
If you have been blessed and are not in need of the stimulus payment, won’t you prayerfully consider sharing a portion of it with a charity or ministry?
We have always believed in the power of prayer. If there is something weighing on your mind or want to submit a prayer, let us know through our prayer request form or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
