The FAITH PROMISE OFFERING is a method of missionary giving by individuals or families through First Church of God. A FAITH PROMISE is made to contribute a certain amount, either weekly or monthly, to the missionary fund of the church, over and above the usual tithe, and other offerings. It is based upon faith and is given first, just as the tithe, trusting God for needs. It follows the basic biblical principle of sowing and reaping, sowing always being first. (2 Corinthians 9:6)
The Faith Promise offerings received by First Church of God helps to support the following:
The Jones’ are currently serving God in the country of Bolivia. The Nicholas’ are in Kenya, Laurie is a nurse and Ernie is a teacher.
Hearts to Hands
This ministry is for members of the congregation that are in need of assistance.
The Christian Soup Ministry
The Christian Soup Ministry provides meals to the less fortunate several days per week and is entirely supported by the giving of others to those in need.
First call for help
First Call for Help is another local service agency that is assisted by our Faith Promise giving. We assist them in helping those who have needs to order vital records, drivers licenses and photo ID’s needed to assist them in obtaining employment.
Juarez Mexico Missions
For many years members of the congregation at First Church of God make the trip to Juarez, Mexico to spread fellowship and assist in much needed work for the families there. Our church members enjoy this time with the “extended” families and return each year with wonderful stories of fun and fellowship.
In May of 2007, the community of Greensburg, Kansas was devastated when a tornado leveled the majority of the town. The First Church of God family not only donated Faith Promise funds to this worthy cause, we also volunteered time to assist in the clean up efforts.
