    A mailing was sent out in October 2018 with details about the Restore His House Capital Campaign, giving you the opportunity to make your commitment to the Campaign.  If you did not make a commitment yet, it if not too late.  You can pick up a commitment card in the church office.  Or you may make donations to the campaign anytime by writing “Capital Campaign” on the memo line of your check.
