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.

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

ABCD Appeal Update! So far, we’ve received ($55,122.36),in cash and pledges. We still have a ways to go ($31,336.64), short. Thank you.
