Love is the doctrine of this church!

In our congregation, we work to support our financial needs through the regular pledges of our members and friends, and it is our honor to offer our collection each week, in its entirety, to support an organization doing good work in our region or in the wider world.

In 2016,our fourth full year dedicating our weekly offering to organizations doing good work in the wider world, we contributed more than $12,000 to the 47 recipients listed below. Our average collection was just over $250.
