ENSENADA EXPEDITION FUNdraiser – FROM NEEDS TO NAILS

As the Ensenada departure nears, we have some team members needing to raise funds. If you have a “need” that could be tackled by a student, the Ensenada Expedition team members are at your service. Any donations received for their service will essentially HELP POUND another nail into the homes the team plans to build in July. Not sure you have a project? Perhaps you could gift someone you know with a little help! Contact Pastor Chris at 763.244.4957.
