Sources of Funds
Dimes for Disasters During the Depresson Bing Crosby and Rudy Vallee sang a song called Brother Can You Spare A Dime? We invite people to place their spare dimes in the marked container found on the ushers' table as you enter the sanctuary. The funds will then be used to help victims of disasters such as hurricanes, tsunamis and earthquakes.
Thank You Lighthouse In gratitude for God's many blessings, moments close to Christ, healing and recovery, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. individuals place donations in the lighthouse bank.
Memorial Donations In memory of loved ones, some people designate monetary gifts for missions.
