CHURCH OF CHRIST WORLDWIDE in Lexington Kentucky operates under the auspices of the Cramer & Hanover Church of Christ.  We are thankful for this continuing ministry of assisting churches and individuals in the distribution of funds.  The Mission Office manages 32 accounts on a daily basis under the leadership of David & Betsy Harding and Stanna Page.   Their “work of faith” and “labor of love” is greatly appreciated.
