Your generosity makes an impact for God’s kingdom in our city, country, and around the world. Jesus Christ paid it all for us, through His death and resurrection, and we are to give, from what he has blessed us with, freely, generously, sacrificially, and cheerfully to further His name.
Giving is not something we have to do, it’s something we get to do.

SECOND MILE GIVING
May: Dwell Orphan Care
Dwell Orphan Care exists to support foster and adoptive families in Lycoming County, PA and beyond, so that children have a safe, loving, forever home in which to dwell. Find out more here.
June & July: TRANSFORM & Community Care
In years past we have sought to bless our community through TRANSFORM as a week-long local mission experience with our neighbors right here in Williamsport. This year we cannot share in Transform in our usual manner due to the current pandemic. However, we will continue to offer blessings to our community based on the current needs our neighbors are facing in this unique time. Our second mile giving for June and July will focus on offering support and meeting the needs in Williamsport that have arisen because of the pandemic. These needs may include, but are not limited to, fighting food insecurity, addressing shelter needs, supporting health care workers, and fighting poverty.
