Please place your donations in the buckets as you arrive.


PLEASE CONSIDER SETTING UP “PAR”    PAR is the pre-authorized payment plan for your church offering. There is no charge and the amount you choose comes from the bank account of your choice, and is credited directly to the church. No more missed Sundays, or catching up. PAR helps your church with even support to meet its obligations. PAR makes it easy for you, to offer consistent support, and to know you have done your part!
