119th CHURCH ANNIVERSARY:
As we move toward our 119th Church Anniversary it is imperative that we reach a certain financial bench mark.  Toward that end, Bishop is asking faithful and sacrificial givers to join with him in pursuing a $100,000.00 goal for the Church Anniversary on November 26, 2017.  A feasible way to accomplish this goal is installments per month above your tithe and offering as we are six months away from the Church Anniversary.  Please commit this effort to prayer and thank you in advance for your continued support.
