2017 Annual Report

2017 Annual Report

 

Dear 26 West Church family,

We are better together.

On behalf of the elders and staff, thank you for your generosity and commitment to “help people experience life in Jesus." We are making a difference – caring for the needy in our community, sponsoring children in Uganda, preventing children from entering sex trafficking,  planting churches in Spokane and Bend and San Diego and Uganda and Estonia, and partnering with like-minded organizations to share the Good News around the world.

Thank you for following Jesus by living generously. Now let’s pray that God enables us to love, serve, and share the Good News with more in 2018.
