We have a GREAT crew of cleaning and maintenance volunteers. Our sincere and heartfelt gratitude is extended to these wonderful people who have worked faithfully and tirelessly to ensure that our building is in good shape. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Because of the size of our facility, these workers can't do it all. Your help is needed. Will you join our crew? Please stop by our "Helping Tree" in the foyer and select an area for which you are willing to take responsibility. Many thanks to you for your commitment to keeping our building in tip-top shape!

Child Sponsorship

Will you be an advocate for children in need? For just $25/month you can help change a child's story from one of poverty to one of possibility and hope.

The Child Sponsorship Program through Nazarene Compassionate Ministries is looking for people to step up and make a difference. For more information, check out www.ncm.org/cs.
