"After discussing the excitement of New Connections in the Synod, Nancy Ann and I decided to get the ball rolling with a $25,000 commitment. We think its a great way to grow the church that we love into the future." ~ Bishop Richard Graham
The plan includes $2.5 million worth of initiatives to connect at least 3,000 new people to our congregations.
