    U Matters

    This Sunday we will take a special offering for disaster relief. Our mission director Lee-Ann and the mission committee investigated a number of options and have chosen World Vision as the recipient of our special offering.

    We have received advice from ICM and from Andrew Luison, a key Filipino Christian leader, to look at some longer term assistance. Check out the Crossroad’s announcement below for yet another way to help. But right now let’s pray, give, and be extra caring for our congregational members from the great country of the Philippines.
