EASTER SPECIAL MISSION OFFERING

This year, our Easter Offering will be given to the Salvation Army.  Wherever there is a need in New Britain, or anywhere, you’ll find The Salvation Army there to help.  Their message is based on the Bible, its ministry is motivated by the love of God and its mission is to meet human needs.  This collection will take place on Easter Sunday, April 4th.
