This week @ The Place

Please join us this Sabbath at The Place for worship and praise.

Financial Support for the Mission of The Place & New Kiosk 

God is great and we invite his continued blessings on the outreach and ministry of The Place.  Thanks so much for your financial support of our ministry and church family. God has moved in our community in so many ways throughout the year and we look forward to more in 2017. You may support the mission of The Place on-line at www, with no fees.

For those of you who prefer to make your donations with a debit or credit card, we now have two giving kiosks in the back. You can use it to make a one-time donation or set up a recurring gift. The first time you'll need to create an account, after that you can simply sign in.
