Dear Promisors,

On October 21-22 we begin our annual Heart for the Harvest series – a season in the life of our church family that I have been praying for and looking forward to all year long. As many of you know, the heart of Faith Promise Church is to help real people with real problems find real love. To accomplish this vision from our Heavenly Father we need His help and the help of all Promisors as well. read more
