OUR OUTREACH FOCUS FOR SEPTEMBER IS OUR HELPING HANDS MINISTRY:  Since the program’s inception in 2011, this special congregational program supports people in our midst who quietly struggle day-to-day but don’t qualify for assistance through established organizations. The beauty of this program is that the funds have a full and direct impact on people’s lives.  There is no middle man, no administrative fees or other costs associated with the Helping Hands program.  Whatever is donated to Helping Hands goes to those needing help.  Please support Helping Hands with a designated gift or let Pastor Mike know if you are able to offer your time or personal services to help others. The program has become a significant part of our congregation’s ministry.
