MINISTRY AND MISSIONS
Our support of these missionaries and ministries is through “Faith-Promise” giving and our Church budget.
Faith-Promise pledges are received in March of each year and the money pledged goes directly to the missions and ministries listed
below. Also, for the past 18 years our congregation has sent short term mission teams to Merida, Mexico. We send these mission
teams to Mexico about every two years.
