World Outreach Week


After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people, and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.

Join the story through prayer...

Sunday, May 6

Join the story through giving...

  • This is the climax of the celebration: the time when we get to respond in faith and joy to the stirring of the Holy Spirit to join God’s grand story through giving. On Faith Promise Sunday we ask God for a number and promise that if he provides that amount, we will give it back to him to be used for his glory in the world through Faith Promise. Faith Promise Sunday is a wonderful day!
