Easter Offering for Missions
Our Easter Offering for Missions benefits three partner ministries, two local and one worldwide. St. Paul Children’s Foundation and Hiway 80 Rescue Mission minister to thousands in need in our community. Lives around the world are touched by UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief). To help make a difference, just mark your contribution “Easter Offering for Missions” and bring it or mail it to the church by Easter, April 1.
