Do you have a neighbor or friend, outside of the Imago Dei Community, who’s hurting? Who’s experienced a recent tragedy, trauma or crisis? Change for a Dollar is here to help.
Every Sunday folks here have the opportunity to drop a single dollar bill into buckets on the communion tables. This small gesture is one way we as a church community can support you loving your neighbor well: providing a big check to meet a one-time significant need.
