The church has worked carefully to keep our strong ministries and mission programs in place throughout this pandemic. We are grateful that church member contributions as well as generous contributions from community members and friends have been strong.

We are pleased to announce that we have applied for Payroll Protection Plan (PPP) relief through the SBA and have been approved for $280,000. We are required to use this for payroll and some utilities and to comply with a needs assessment and reporting guidelines in order for it to be forgiven as a loan and converted to a grant.

One of the blessings of this relief and ongoing contributions is that to date we have been able to keep the employees of our Early Childhood Program and church employed and able to support themselves and their families.

The church’s fiscal year ends June 30. Statements were recently sent. If you have questions, please contact Rachel Clement, Director of Finance at 816-381-9256. Our Finance Committee, under the leadership of Phil Howes, is reviewing our income and expenses and planning for all possible future scenarios as we move forward as a church to love and serve in God’s name.
