our mission:

"Encouraging people to learn, show, and share God's love through service and support"

Thank you for your support of our rebuilding effort through Erie Gives.
With matching donations, we received over $27,000!

On July 22, 2018 our historic church building was destroyed by a fire,  HOWEVER we, "the church", are still present in Girard.
