In conjunction with Inspiring Hearts Academy, Velda Rose is collecting canned goods to donate to the needy this upcoming holiday season. We are asking you to consider donating canned goods for this project. A Christmas tree will be created from all donated cans – come check it out in the Church’s Narthex! W will also be collecting gift cards and small gifts to donate to children who will not have a very merry holiday season.

Please consider donating to this worthwhile project. Instead of getting that cup of specialty coffee or that fast food meal, take that money and purchase canned goods for our Christmas tree! Any questions? Please see Pastor Daniel or Barbara Emri.
