Every year the Church Council recommends organizations outside our Church to support to make a difference. We do give generously to these missions. “BUT” there always seems to be a disaster or an emergency around the world or at home that is also in need. This year there were three major hurricanes and floods to which we sent funds. Our Easter and Christmas Special Offerings were given to help the homeless. An additional fund went to ELCA Good Gifts and Second Harvest Food Bank.
