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 two missionary families. Knapp mission funds are also set aside for special projects, local outreach, and financially assisting needy people within our congregation and our community.
