Ways To Give
The Fellowship Family has many ways that it gives to the community. However, it also needs to support the work of the ministry inside the walls of the building, including its staff and the ministry’s operating expenses. By giving directly to the work of the congregation, the mission and ministry of the Fellowship Family can reach even further.
