DONATIONS FOR SUPPLIES
Be a part of helping kids around the world! This year we are partnering with OneMeal and Children of the Nations to provide much-needed meals to hungry children in Sierra Leone.
Our goal this year is to pack over 180,000 meals. We are asking our church family to pitch in and donate the cost of supplies needed for the meal packing event. When donating online, please choose Missions Giving from the drop-down options and then designate your gift to MEAL PACKING.
Check out OneMeal and Children of the Nations to learn more about their ministries.

Our goal is $22,000.
We have raised $0 so far.
We still need $22,000 to reach our goal.
