The purpose of the Promise Banquet is to raise funds for tuition assistance and other programs while informing the community about the outstanding Christian education at True Light Christian School. For several years we have enjoyed a delicious meal, provided a glimpse of what the school has to offer, and concluded the evening with a guest speaker. Reservations are required through the school office.
