New Year Giving

Going into the New Year, we will look to support these types of organizations that will need help now more than ever with the new administration.  As part of our Mission Action effort, our church makes a financial donation to a different organization each month.  We are also encouraging our members to make personal donations to these causes as a response against the hate that is growing in many places.  The non-profits that we are considering making monthly gifts to in 2017 include the Anti Defamation League (, Planned Parenthood (, the Center for Reproductive Rights (, the Natural Resources Defense Council (, the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund (, the Trevor Project for LGBT Youth (, and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (
