An Offering Will Be Taken

posted Dec 12, 2018, 4:42 PM by Ken Schmidt   [ updated Dec 12, 2018, 4:43 PM ]

At the 7pm Christmas Eve Service, a 75% of the offering will be going to support the Paradise Church of the Brethren and its community.  That congregation’s facility and parsonage were destroyed in the recent “Camp Fire” in California; a fire of historic devastation that took many lives and thousands of homes in the region.  Throughout December, the congregation is invited to direct individual designated gifts through our offerings to be sent to the Pacific SouthWest District for a special fund for this congregation.
