Thank you for your dedication to the Praise and Worship Center. Your giving allows the holy work of this community to thrive and for us to be Jesus to those we encounter on the journey of faith. For example, is the work of Matthew’s Crossing and our ministry partnership with them. As inflation hits the economically vulnerable, people are being forced to make choices between food, gas, electricity, or rent. Due to your commitment, Matthew’s Crossing is available to our brothers and sisters who are struggling and provide them with food boxes.
