Holiday Initiatives

THIS HOLIDAY SEASON….make a joyful noise!

These opportunities are simply suggestions of ways your family can be generous this holiday season. By no means do we expect you to do all of them! Prayerfully consider one of these options that you may feel called to participate in as a way your family can make a joyful noise in Jesus’ name. Or make your own music with an independent choice elsewhere!
