Ruth’s Promise

A Community Care Center

Ruth’s Promise is a respite ministry of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. The story of Ruth and her promise to her mother-in-law Naomi (Ruth 1:16) highlights caring, loyalty, faith, devotion and the resulting shared respect and understanding. Through Ruth’s Promise: A Community Care Center, we are committed to continuing that promise. If you know someone who would benefit from this ministry, encourage them to contact Terri Ziegler (727.365.1866 or or Dr. Cate McCarty (813.384.7571).
