2. Talk to and share your Fall Fund Drive direct mailer with your family, friends, neighbors, and anyone else who you think might support the mission of CCS. (Extra mailers are available in the school office.)
3. Pray that God would open his storehouse and pour out his blessing on CCS.
4. Give as the Lord leads.
*Remember, every dollar we raise will be matched by our very generous donors.
