This “Giving” activity occurs during the offering time at service, but donations may be directed to the Noisy Offering at any time. Children carry little pails and come thru the congregation as the other offering is being collected, to gather loose change from those willing to give. Money collected during 2022 from the Noisy Offering was given to Mission of Hope and His Hands Free Clinic.

During the Sunday Service every Sunday.

Each year the money collected is given to local charities.
