Pender’s Annual Mission Conference ~ April 12-14th Faith Promise Missions Budget




Pender’s Annual Mission Conference is fast approaching!

We will have activities for the whole family to enjoy. Including two themed pot luck suppers of South American and Asian/Indian Food, South American Dance Demonstrations, as well as, missionary speakers and wonderful music. A full agenda will be provided soon!

Thank you for your support of the Faith Promise Missions Budget each year. The Faith Promise Mission’s Budget is separate from the general budget of the church and is funded by faith promises. A faith promise is when you make a promise to provide financial support to missions, you may not know where the resources will come from, and you trust God to provide the resources to meet your promise. This year’s Faith Promise Missions Budget goal is $310,000 and supports global and local missionaries, missionary organizations, short-term mission trips and projects.
