In prayer, we worship and are moved by the Spirit to be generous as we ask expectantly for God to BREAKTHROUGH.

In order to be faithful to our calling and to maximize the opportunities that God has opened up to us, we as a church are launching a new initiative that we are calling “BREAKTHROUGH.” Together, over the next three years we will challenge one another to go above and beyond our regular giving to make way for God’s BREAKTHROUGH in PEOPLE, PLACES, and PLANTS.
