June Giving Challenge Update

After the generous giving of our Church family through the June giving challenge the whole month of June, we received $200,000 above our monthly budget and through that money we are hoping to use it as a down payment towards a Youth Center in Ceres and we are also praying for where God might have us plant another location North of our Modesto Campus.
