Each share is worth $25. With this share, you and a guest will be invited to join them for dessert and a presentation at the Shareholder’s Banquet on Sunday, July 11, where the youth will share their experiences from the trip.

Radio and Altar Flower Sponsors

Each week our radio broadcast and altar flowers have sponsors who support these important outreach ministries of the church. Our radio broadcast reaches many people who are not able to worship with us in person. The altar flowers are delivered each week to someone needing a little cheer or celebrating a special event. You will be contacted prior to your week for payment and your special message for the announcements. This year the sign up is only online. You can always call the church office anytime and someone can help you get your days reserved.
