All families are encouraged to support the CSA. By donating to the CSA, you are answering God’s call to discipleship to put the work of God before your own needs.

To Our Church Family
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Our family is so grateful for the love, support, donations, and prayers received since Dwane’s diagnosis of brain cancer in March. We are especially thankful for the fundraiser, Baked from the Heart. It raised enough for over 30 days in hospice! We do not know how long Dwane will need hospice so this definitely eases a burden. God Bless You All!
Dwane, Sandy & Robert Anderson
A heartfelt thank you to our amazing parish family, local businesses, and the community for their outpouring of support for the Baked from the Heart Benefit. Special thanks to the religious education teachers for their help in planning the event.
With sincere gratitude, Lesa & Ray Radtke
Sympathy & Prayers to the family of Phyllis Currie. + May she rest in peace.
