MISSIONS COLLECTION IN THE LOBBY
God’s Kitchen: We’re collecting non-perishable items like canned vegetables, rice, potatoes, pasta, etc.
Faith Promise Sunday
In years past, Homeport has supported our Missionaries by sending 10% of our weekly giving. As we sought the Lord’s guidance and direction regarding our missions giving, we felt the draw to change our missions support to a different model. Faith Promise offers all of us an opportunity to trust the Lord. It’s a chance to step out in faith and give above what we give through our tithes and offerings.
On Sunday, November 20th we are hosting our first Faith Promise rally and ask that you begin to prayerfully consider how you will participate in stepping out in faith to support our missionaries the work they are doing around the globe.
