SPECIAL CONTRIBUTION
December 16 is special contribution Sunday!   Each year we designate our special contribution to mission and benevolence opportunities that aren’t a part of our budgeted works.  This year, we plan to set aside funds to help KWO, our teen challenge ministry, and GCR families in need.  It will take $100,000 to fully fund these opportunities.  If we raise more than that, we’ll provide additional funds for church planting and for GCR members wishing to go on short term mission trips to our supported mission locations.  Please be in prayer about how you can be involved on December 16.
