On May 7th, we collectively moved in faith by dedicating our entire offering to The Lord to do with what only He can do.  

Our humble donations and pledges to support the Missions He has brought before us to pray over, encourage, and GIVE to.

Believing in what God IS and WILL do to advance His Kingdom by allowing us to participate in giving back to Him,

our pledges and donations on May 7th totaled $701,947!!!   Our "drops" .... HIS LIVING WATER!

It's not too late to be part of Mission Give Day by submitting your donations and/or pledges.
