November 21st the Presbytery voted to give every congregation a gift of $5,000 to engage in new community ministry! Each congregation is to have prayerful discernment where God is calling them to minister in the community. Click here to see the letter that was sent - we will share what the churches were led to do around Easter. Keep prayers surrounding  this ministry. Thanks be to God.
