FAITH PROMISES for MISSIONS
Each year, the Missions Committee at SSBC creates the missions budget for the coming year (Jan.-Dec.) based on Missions Faith Promises made by you, church members. Please ask God to guide you to the amount that He wants to provide through you in the coming year. These funds enable our mission partners to do gospel work around the world.
Please make your Faith Promise Commitment by December 3, 2023.
