Change for Change Campaign
Keep collecting your change and filling your Lenten boxes. We are on a mission to raise $500 this Lenten season in the fight against malaria. Help us “change” someone’s life by working to eradicate malaria. Boxes will be collected throughout the month of April. Please feel free to fill your boxes with change, dollar bills, and/or checks. You can also give electronically through the giving button on the church’s website.
