COMMENTS // We continue to be thankful for the giving windfall we experienced this past spring, and continue to closely watch trends and seek discernment as we steward the resources God has given us.


40 YEARS OF MINISTRY // On July 10 we gathered to celebrate 40 years of life-changing ministry as we took a walk down memory lane, remembering the wonderful things God has done through our fellowship over the past four decades. The celebration was filled with hope for a bright future as we continue to lead people to pursue a Jesus-first life. A special thank you to all who have financially given at any point the past four decades. You have made the ministry of Morning Star possible.
