Online giving helps Ohio church support community

Jack Hemple grew up at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Toledo, Ohio. His parents were married there. He was baptized there. “I remember being there a lot as a kid,” Hemple said, adding that back then his mother loved to knit. “She was always knitting. She had a specific hat pattern that she used and she’d knit hats and give them to the church,” he remembered. But in the late 1980s, a lack of support caused the church to close.
