Thank you to all who take their donations to Knox Area Rescue Ministries (KARM).  As a Corners of Your Field partner, every donation from those saying they’re connected with Second UMC is so appreciated, and quarterly they send us gift cards to KARM stores that we are able to share with those in need. What a blessing and great partnership!
