GRPC supports several missionaries and missions organizations around the world through our Faith Promise program.
What is Faith Promise?
Faith Promise is how our church supports missions. Church members, not church leaders, are given the privilege to determine how much the church wants to give to missions for the upcoming year. Every year, each member is encouraged to fill out a Faith Promise card, specifying the amount they expect to give for missions in the following year, over and above their regular tithes and offerings. The completed cards are anonymous and not binding on anyone. Members are instructed to write down an amount in faith, and then to watch and give as God provides during the year. The total amount from all the cards represents how much the congregation would like to give to missions.
Since we started Faith Promise over a decade ago, our donations to missions have increased dramatically.
What is Southwest Emergency Services (SWES)?
SWES provides financial aid, food, clothing, household goods, school supplies, holiday assistance, referrals, baby necessities, and shower facilities for residents of the 21227 zip code, and a small area of the 21229 zip code.
