During the month of August, we will be collecting our Florida and Beyond Summer Missions Offering.  This offering reaches out to Florida’s orphaned and disadvantaged children, our state mission efforts, and feeding the hungry of the world. It supports the Florida Baptist Children's Homes, Maguire State Mission Offering, and Florida Baptist Global Hunger Relief. Please be in prayer as what God places in your heart to give. Our goal is $5,000.
