June 12: Strengthen the Church Offering
As God calls our congregations to be the church in new ways, your generosity can plant new churches, awaken new ideas in existing churches and develop the spiritual life in our youth and young adults. We will receive the Strengthen the Church offering on June 12. By your generosity to this offering, you build up the Body of Christ.
