Stepping Out in Faith
Faith Promise Sunday is next Sunday, March 31. We are welcoming guest preacher, Derrek Belase. At noon, join us for the Faith Promise Lunch in the Fellowship Hall. The lunch will be a free home-cooked meal and helps celebrate Chapel Hill’s Faith Promise Ministry.
Faith Promise is above-and-beyond giving based on blessing others through mission. One makes a “Faith Promise” to give, trusting that God will provide. Faith Promise funds are given as grants and are used to help support several types of missions including:
Persons who work in full-time ministry but are not ministers. These people work for organizations that mentor, counsel, and bring Jesus to people, such as college students, business men, those with addictions, and people who struggle with life problems.
Missionaries in Jerusalem, Belize/Honduras, Philippines, and Albania
Ministry support in many areas, including several that take place here at Chapel Hill. These ministries include: Whiz Kids, Exodus House, Oklahoma Clergy Crisis Fund, Circle of Care Foster Homes Project, Lydia Patterson Scholarships, Project Transformation (which Chapel Hill runs during the summer), Mobile Meals, childcare for NA and AA (which meet at Chapel Hill during the week), and Ft. Supply Prison Ministry.
Funds are also provided for our local church missions including Rebuilding Together here in Oklahoma City and Chapel Hill Mission Trips to other states for building and relief efforts.
This past year Faith Promise also provided funds to the Wesley Foundation at Langston University and to Canyon Camp for a nursing station, which is being built on the camp grounds.
Every year Faith Promise receives notes and calls from those whom the funding has helped. It is a joy and a true blessing to be able to help others as Jesus directed us to do. Make your Faith Promise on Sunday, March 31st, and celebrate this wonderful outreach of Chapel Hill United Methodist Church.
