There are many ways you can help keep this Lighthouse on the mountain shining bright. Keeping us in your prayers and meditations, remembering our mission and sending positive energy towards our work. You can help by volunteering your time to come and help clear trails and work in the gardens. Your tax deductible donations go along ways towards keeping things running around here and provide much needed funds to help those in need in our community. Your contributions to our food pantry helps us feed one more family for one more day. So join us won’t you? In this effort to hold a space of peace and fellowship, while serving those in need around the mountain. Please consider a donation to Terra Nova Center using our safe and secure Pay Pal interface. Each donation no matter what size counts very much towards helping us meet our goals.
