Urban Promise Presents a Night of Promise! (10/8/20)

Posted by on Oct 3, 2020 in EventAnnouncement, Mission: Beyond our Community, Urban Promise | 0 comments

Urban Promise is an organization that’s doing great work with the kids in Camden NJ.  We’ve been supporting them, and they have shared their ministry with us on several Sundays.  Each year, they have a banquet, but they can’t do that this time because of the pandemic.  So, like us, they have found new ways of doing ministry.

On October 8, they will throw a “virtual banquet” and encourage viewers with testimonies of hope and promise.


Virtual Night of Promise

Here’s how the event is described on the Urban Promise website

In true UrbanPromise tradition, we are not letting hard circumstances dictate how we face the world. Our staff and kids excel at making lemonade our of lemons!


In lieu of our in-person annual Banquet, an event that we have all come to love, please join us online for our Virtual Night of Promise on October 8th. You will get to hear from some of our amazing kids and you’ll also hear Dr. Bruce Main share how COVID-19 has impacted us and how we are striving to make great things happen for our kids. All proceeds from the night will support UrbanPromise programs throughout the City of Camden.

The event is free, but you have to register for “tickets.”  In this case, the “ticket” is an emailed Zoom invitation link.  During the registration process,  you’ll have the opportunity to donate to UrbanPromise’s ministries (and your gift will be matched by the Holman Enterprises).  Here are the details:

Time flies!  It has been a while since we’ve had a visit from UrbanPromise.  But their work and our support and prayers continue.  Not only will “The Virtual Night of Promise” be a chance to get caught up on what UrbanPromise is doing, but (more importantly), it will give us a chance to catch some of the spirit and hope that they’re giving to the kids that they’re blessed to work with.
