Giving online

You don't have to write a check each week, if you want you can give online.  Follow the link below and you can give your weekly donation, or give donations for the Food Bank, Craft Fairs, or others.

Don't worry though, you can still give money or checks on Sunday if you want to - this is just one more option for you
