3 ways to make an impact:

When Susie Zavala (Children's Pastor) was only a little girl, she remembers riding on a church bus to get to church. This changed her life forever! Now she leads thousands of children into a loving relationship with Jesus! Right now, we are very close to getting our busses ready to hit the road to pick up little boys and little girls in the streets. We need to wrap busses with the church's logos and colors in order for it to be allowed to pick up kids. Let's come together and make a donation today to help finish the busses!
