Help Meet The Needs In Our Community

Help Meet The Needs In Our Community
Be sure to postmark your gift by December 31

Each year Perimeter Church takes up a special offering to help meet the needs of ministry efforts in our community. This year's gift will go toward our ALL IN effort, which fuels all of our ministry efforts and kingdom impacting initiatives for blessing families, cities, and the next generation. If you are able to make a special one-time gift at year end, we hope you will prayerfully consider giving to this multi-impact ministry initiative.
