The offering goal is $210,000. Fifty percent of offering receipts go to the association where it was given.

Acts 1:8 (ESV) is the theme verse: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and the end of the earth.”
