Week of Prayer

Giving to Special Needs

As a part of the Week of Prayer we are collecting a special offering to go to special needs in the association and our churches.  If you would like to give you can do this in two ways:

  1.  Mail a check to Metro East Baptist Association, 4950 Old Collinsville Road, Swansea, IL 62226
  2.  Click on the "Online Giving" button at the top of this page.  Then you will click on the "Donate" button.  That will open a page that has a dropdown box.  Click on the box and highlight "Special Needs."  Then follow the instruction on the page to give either through Pay Pal or a debt or credit card.

Thank you for giving to the Metro East Baptist Association.
