Here, There & Everywhere

Many thanks to the many folks who gave to our “Here, There and Everywhere” offering. The numbers are still adding up as people who were away or not prepared to give will give on into December. Join them, won’t you? And lets grow our ministry impact forward here, there and everywhere!
