If you attend a church in the Midlands of South Carolina, you may have heard of a nonprofit called Family Promise, which fifteen local churches are participating in.

What is Family Promise?  Simply put, Family Promise is a nationally recognized, nonprofit organization committed to helping low-income families achieve lasting independence. One component of Family Promise is the Interfaith Hospitality Network. But that’s not all there is!

If you would like to learn more about this worthwhile organization and how local churches are getting involved, please attend a Family Promise Informational Luncheon that will be held on Friday, January 23, 2015, at Brookland Baptist Church (1066 Sunset Blvd. in West Columbia, SC).  The sponsoring organization for the luncheon is the local chapeter of Church Women United.  The featured speaker will be The Rev. Dr. Jill Duffield, Associate Pastor of Discipleship at Shandon Presbyterian Church and chair of the local Board of Family Promise.

Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. and a buffet lunch will be available at 11:00 a.m. Luncheon tickets are $15 (checks made payable to Church Women United).  Tickets should be purchased by January 8, 2015, by sending remittance to Joann Grant, 9190 Windsor Blvd., Columbia, SC, 29223.

Information or questions should be directed to Rowena Nylund, phone 803-252-7752.
