Up Coming Renewal – No Ads

Greetings Saints,

Sometimes folks ask about specific costs of running the DSCS site, and like to donate for a specific cause.

Years ago, I decided I didn’t like the Ads to display on the DSCS site, and purchased the option, “No Ads.” This is a yearly fee (Not much at 30 dollars), and is up for renewal.

If you would like to help off-set that fee, I would more than welcome it.

Thank you so much for your continued partnership in this ministry.

Peace and Grace,

John
