About Family Promise

What We Do

A sincere "thank you" goes out to all of our volunteers that helped during our host week in September. This ministry truly serves a need in our community and we are blessed to be a part of a caring congregation that supports those in need.

While the week of November 24th is still almost 2 months away, we do want everyone to be aware that it is Thanksgiving week and it is our next host week. We know that many of our regular volunteers may be out of town. We're asking you to prayerfully consider staying for family time, preparing/serving the meal or staying overnight during this week. If anyone knows they will be available on Thanksgiving day, please let us know as soon as possible. If you have questions or would like to know more about becoming involved when we host Family Promise guests, please contact any of the volunteer team: Bob and Patty Anderson 608-897-9102, Jo Ann Steuri 608-728-2980, Darcey Bedward 608-449-8207, Irv and Kay Case 608-371-7185 or Dean Braund 608-214-0130
