During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Representative Text

1. Father in Heaven, we lift our voice to Thee,
Look down in love and hear our earnest plea,
Give us Thy Holy Spirit now, we pray,
That He may guide us in the narrow way.

2. Oh, heav’nly Father, spread Thy blessèd Word,
Throughout the world the precious news be heard,
Jesus, our Lord and King, has come to reign,
Grant every nation hear it not in vain.
