At Saltwater we like to have fun while we raise money to support the work of the congregation. Bring friends and family and join in. Highlights for this year include:



Feathering Our Nest, April 1st through April 15

Spring is the season for new beginnings and we are feathering our nest! This event replaces our live auction. It will feature the kinds of wonderful items and experiences offered there. We will feather our nest from April 1st through April 15th.  We will have these wonderful items available after service on each Sunday.  Also, please mark the evening of April 14th for a very special fund-a-thon, featuring music, light hors d’ouvres, and raffles!

At this event, our goal is to raise $10,000 to support our programs and welcome our new minister. Would you like to donate to our sweet congregation? A dinner?An awesome adventure? Something Amazing?

For answers to your questions, please contact Anjali Lopez-Stuitt
