Focus on Our Family

Mentow’s youth have adopted a missions project of hosting a meal packaging event for Stop Hunter Now. To date they have raised $639.70 of the $2,500 they need. Recently, they hosted a Baked Spaghetti Dinner & Christmas Concert, raising $377. This year instead of purchasing memorial poinsettias, members of the church family made donations toward the project in memory/in honor of a loved one.
