DATE: Thursday, May 11, 2017
TIME: 6:30 p.m. Central
PRESENTER: Ken Sloane, Director of Stewardship and Connectional Ministries
Electronic giving is not the future of charitable giving, it is the present reality.

If there have been obstacles to making this option available to your church, we will talk about them in this webinar.
