THANK YOU, PARTNERS!

Nearly 22 years!! That's how long we have been in this location. So hard to believe. We want to thank YOU! We are fueled by your love and compassion. We give God all the Glory and thank Him for bringing us together. We pray you will continue to partner with us to bring hope to the hurting and love to the broken, in the name of Jesus.

WE ARE REPLACING OUR ROOF...AND WE NEED YOU!

We have been running a fundraiser to replace our roof for several months. Long ago, to keep rent low, we agreed to take care of the building we are renting. So far we have been able to raise $4584... and we praise God for that! We have only $2716 to go! We ask for your prayers and shares as we continue to raise funds! We have started a FUNDRAISER to more aggressively reach our goal. You can purchase a shirt through Custom Ink through April 1st. Once the campaign is closed, they will ship your shirt directly to you and a check for all the proceeds directly to us! Click here to purchase your shirt today: https://www.customink.com/fundraising/anewroofforgsm2019

Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song!
