We're young, we're old. We're far from perfect and still learning to live more like Jesus. We believe the Lord has brought us together to be more and do more than we can alone. We'd love to share everything we know with you.

This Month on the Extra Mile...

August's Rail Offering - SOS Project: La Encantada Elem. School

Every month we are given the opportunity to reach out further than we could alone. This month the Rail Offering will be going to the students of La Encantada Elementary School in San Benito. It is our 'adopted' campus and has been for several years now. This time around, we are specifically applying any given funds to the purchase of school uniform tops. We all know the prices of EVERYTHING has gone up. We pray this goes towards allowing parents a little breathing room as they ready their children for a new school year. The school staff do so much already, and we also pray it will ease their concerns for their students. La Encantada is a wonderful elementary school in one of the more underserved communities in San Benito. Be in prayer for this ministry and if you want to give, please make sure to designate your gift 'La Encantada' or 'August Rail Offering'. Thank you.
