missions and outreach

Our Goal is to tithe/give 10% of General Fund revenues to missions, locally and globally. Mission recipients include several agencies and one missionary family. Knapp mission funds are also set aside for special projects, local outreach, and financially assisting people in need within our congregation and our community.
