Navajo Nation Needs

Our mission partner, John Aldax, who works with the Navajo Nation in Arizona has been in touch with 400 families in the Shonto, Inscription House, Navajo Mountain, Tse Bii Otseel areas that need help. The Navajo reservation has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, and one of the main issues with which they are struggling is the ability to sanitize and disinfect things.

If you would like to help with this cause, please drop off your donations in the marked barrels in the church office lobby Monday through Thursday 9 AM to 4 PM between now and June 29th.
