Family Promise TY

Home > News & Events > Family Promise TY

What is Ministry? One definition according to Google Webster is: “The spiritual work of any Christian or service of any Christian or a group of Christians.” God continues to bless Peace through several community outreach ministries. I would like to share specifically about Family Promise.  

Family Promise ministry focuses on service to families experiencing temporary challenges of homelessness while providing a safe and secure refuge where they can focus on securing the basic needs for their family. This past month PLC had the privilege of serving two families of four each. Although one of the families had specific dietary needs not accustom to our volunteers, it provided the opportunity to serve and realize God’s children have unique abilities, needs and gifts. 

Both guest families expressed a sincere gratitude for the care, hospitality and concern they experienced during their week at PLC and felt it was truly a blessing from God. As they continue their journey towards independence, it is a comfort to them knowing God cares, and provides for their needs. What a blessing it is for PLC to be a part of HIS plan for these special families. 

Family Promise offers many ways our volunteers can support and participate. First and most importantly we need your prayers for continued guidance for our ministry. We have another hosting week coming in April and will need help with set up, providing meals, hosting families, clean up and financial support. 

If you are interested in joining PLC’s Family Promise Team or learning more, we are having a meeting, Sunday, Mar 1 following fellowship time. Please join us! 

Finally, none of this would be possible without YOU. We thank Peace and all the volunteers for their continued prayers, volunteering and financial support! In John 15:16-17, Jesus said, “You did not choose me, but I choose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. This is my command: Love each other.”

Celebrating Together as we Serve a Risen Savior!
