Fundraising Committee

Organizes fund raising activities. Approximately half of the annual costs of operating our SFCSL facility and offering the Sunday services are covered by committed givers and Sunday service donations. Blessings and thank you to all who support us!! We are a not-for-profit organization. The goal of fundraising is to cover the other half of the expenses of salaries, facilities upkeep, utilities and insurances so that the Center operates as seamlessly as possible throughout the year.
