Community Outreach Programs

Support Tanzania

Members of our church, Jane and Peter Brands, travel to Tanzania to work in a medical facilitiy. We support them by selling fair trade coffee and other crafts. The profit goes straight to paying for medical attention to the locals most in need in Tanzania, as well as supporting a medical student.  If you are interested in learning more or supporting our Tanzania outreach please call the Brandes at 970-328-0423.
