ABCD Appeal - Making a Different

Click here to view video >>

“Charity sees the need, not the cause.” – Proverb

When we truly believe that all we have is a gift from God, then we must be willing to give up some things so that we can share our blessings as God intended. Living a stewardship lifestyle means not only being responsible for our own life, but the lives of others as well.

So far we received $55,122.36 in cash and pledges. However, we are still $31,186.64 short.

Please be as generous as possible in your response to the ABCD appeal. See the many ways you can make a different by making a gift to the ABCD today at Thank you so much.
