"We invite everyone to share communion around God's altar. 
We strive to be a welcoming and relevant Christian community doing what matters through prayer, worship, teaching, outreach, fellowship, and service.

reason by providing a safe place to respond to each other's needs,   
hurts, joys, and interests."

Family Promise supports children and their families in White, Habersham, and other surrounding counties across Northeast Georgia.
