Christmas Angel Project

Every year, our church helps you to find that perfect gift … instead of giving something they don’t need, why not give a gift to a mission project or to disaster relief or to a non-profit making a difference in our community! You make the donation in honor of your loved one, and we will send a card to them acknowledging your donation.
