Help for Gaby and Alan Bailey-Juarez
Due to the financial strain brought on by Gaby’s transplant surgeries, the Eldership has chosen to help them financially. We also want to encourage individual members to help Gaby and Alan as well. You can do so by identifying on your church contribution check or electronic deposit how much you want to give to Gaby and Alan. We will then distribute your donation with the church funds we plan to give them. If you have any questions then simply pull us aside or call any of us anytime. The Chino Elders
