PromiseLand Preschool Ministry

Welcome Desk Ministry

Welcome Desk Ministry stocks, organizes, displays and distributes all sorts of information specific to Friendship, and helpful tracts and booklets on various topics.  The folk behind the Desk have a general knowledge of Friendship and willingly respond to any inquiry posed to them.
