Hero Maker Challenge
Our goal was to raise $60,000 to fund three church planters! We ended up raising just shy of $100,000 in our Hero Maker Challenge. Continue to pray for our church planting partners as they serve the world!
Part of our Raise the Bar initiative is to partner with local schools. We partner with Hammett Bowen Elementary, Maplewood Elementary, Forest Highschool and Leesburg Highschool. Thank you for joining us as we partner with these schools that serve our communities!
Living Hope Haiti
Two of our members, Calvin and Becky Babcock, started Living Hope Haiti with a calling to help the Haitian people! Today, they have 5 schools, 4 churches, an orphanage, a guest house, a medical clinic, a visiting surgical program, and a variety of other programs.
