Special Mission – Our special mission envelopes for January are designated to help the Heart, Love, & Soul Food Pantry in Niagara Falls.  The winter months after the holidays are a time when requests for assistance typically increase, and unfortunately donations from the community typically drop off.  We hope to be able to assist Heart & Soul with a generous donation at the end of this month.  If your prayers
move you to assist your neighbors in need in this way, please place your January Special Mission envelope in the offering plate any Sunday in January.  Thank you for your generosity.
