If the amount you have promised to give isn’t a challenge to you, it may not stretch your faith.

IS YOUR PROMISE REALLY MADE IN

FAITH?

why must i fill out a faith promise card
Faith promises play an important role in order to plan for the future. When the leaders see God’s people believe God, it challenges them for new opportunities.

Missionaries cannot leave for the field until the monies needed are provided

WHY MUST I FILL OUT A FAITH PROMISE CARD?
i don t want others to know what i am giving

Amounts, but not names, will be announced.

I DON’T WANT OTHERS TO KNOW WHAT I AM GIVING!
  • Confidentiality will be maintained.

If you desire absolute anonymity, then merely place an amount on the card.
