5th Sunday Building Offering:  taken on the 5th Sundays of the year, this offering is above and beyond any and all pledges to the annual budget or building fund.  The money is applied directly tothe principal of the building loan.  The building loan was paid in full at the end of 2008, so the fund now goes to any on-going renovation projects that are in place.



This offering is taken every fourth Sunday and is combined with offerings from other churches in the Wallace, Teachey, and Rose Hill communities, to help pay for school lunches at area public schools for children whose families are experiencing economic hardship.  The offering also supports the weekend “Backpack Buddy” program which provides food for school children.
