So, guess what?! We got some great news the other night. When our six-month partnership and community development time finished in August, we knew that we probably wouldn’t reach the goal we set for 2020: to see an additional $2020 of monthly sustaining support committed.

There were several that I would say most of our church recognized and then there was this […]
Momentum is Building These past few weeks, the word “momentum” has been on our minds. Depending on your point of view, the events taking place and gaining momentum in our world could be seen as good or just plain bad (a certain virus out there…). As we think about it, we realize some things don’t […]
The Beginning Think with me, back to the beginning, way back in the beginning. God told Noah and his family after they set foot on what was a new earth following the flood, to “be fruitful and multiply on the earth.” From that point, the world began to be populated again.
