As a result of God’s blessings, your hard work (through Him) and your commitment to the campaign we are making progress! As of today, our “Free to Serve” campaign pledge total is $1.1 million. We are closer to paying down our mortgage, blessing our school, and hiring a full-time Director of Music.

Craftsman Jim Abel made this beautiful cabinet that is designed to be filled as donations come in for the Free to Serve capital campaign. When this is filled Phase One is complete and the full-time Music Director can be called. Thanks, Jim!

FP thank youSt. Paul’s Congregation,

I have been meaning to write and thank you for your incredible contribution to Family Promise. To be designated this year as your local organization was truly an honor and blessing.

We thank you also for helping in the way of being a supporting congregation as well. We hope to reach out to more families in need of shelter and comfort as well as have opportunity to develop our program to help with sustainability of stable housing and home life. With our new director coming, I know this will be a fantastic year.

Blessings to you all,

Marjore Thompson, Board Chair
