The Penny Project

This is a simple way that we support local agencies. We bring in our pennies, change, and dollars to support our local ministries. We collect them them in the containers in the Fellowship Hall and the entry table on the lower level. Past pennies have been donated to HOPE Southern Indiana, the Salvation Army, the Youth Shelter, the IUS Food Pantry, Centenary Christ Kitchen, and Center for Women and Families.
