Your tithing through your continued giving allows us to continue to minister during these difficult times of Covid-19. If you have not been giving, we ask you to bring it to prayer and ask the Lord to guide you. Thank you for your generosity! You can tithe in one of three ways:
Mail in your gift to: Praise and Worship Center, 2551 N. Arizona Avenue, Chandler, AZ 85225.
Donate on our web page: Donation Form.
Sign up for monthly giving with a credit card or voided check. Just call the office at 480-649-0300.

As the infection rates of Covid-19 rise in our state and country, we pray for those who are sick and suffering. We also remember their caregivers, as well as doctors, nurses and hospital staff who are working so diligently to help heal them.

We are looking forward to seeing you this Sunday morning at 10:00 in church or on Facebook Live.

Fr. Dale and Pastor Mark
