Annual Report & Newsletters

As you look at the 2020 Annual Report, we pray you will find encouragement. Even in the darkest of times, the light of Christ shows through. When people were faced with unexpected circumstances they were met with neighbors stepping up to bridge the gap.

Thank YOU for being a part of that bridge!
