Resurrection Lutheran Church Grants $1,500 to CBWP

Thank you, Pastor Bill Hutchison and everyone at Resurrection Lutheran. This generous grant will help us send more books to more women in prison. We know there are many worthy causes, and we are grateful that you’ve recognized our work in this way. Many thanks as well to our longtime volunteer Betsy for helping make this happen!
