Giving Update

End of fiscal year update:  We are so thankful we were able to end the year in the black and fulfill our full mission partner support which resulted in 11.2% to Outside Missions & 1.7% more for Missions Locally. Including CMC mission staffing we support missions with a total of 20% of our 19/20 revenue. Amazing in this challenging year!”


We are so thankful for your support of our congregation!
