BISHOP'S ANNUAL APPEAL FOR MINISTRIES

‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine,
you did for me.’ —Matthew 25:40

'It is good that you are here.'

— Bishop J. Mark Spalding

When you give to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal for Ministries, you support those in need today and provide them the ability to be fully present where their feet are planted. Please prayerfully consider how the Lord is calling you to give and know of my prayers for you and your family.”
