Funds for Erica Lien

She needs first our prayers and second financial support to cover medical and living expenses. You can support her by donating online on her GoFundMe page:  Click here, or you can write a check to Maureen Lien. Pastor Brenda can deliver the check to the family. We have been approved for a $250 Thrivent Action Team Grant to help raise funds for Erica as well. Thank you for your support for this special person in our congregation.
