NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Women from different walks of life are coming together to raise money for families in the Napier community.

The women call themselves God's Promise Sisters. They belong to the Church of the Messiah on Lafayette Street or Harpeth Hills Church of Christ in Brentwood.

"We don't look at the color of our skin," said Kelly Berry, of Brentwood. "I see my sisters."

Some women have been in the bible study group since it formed about a decade ago.

"This has been a real nice thing for me," said Mary Gates, of the Napier community. "I've learned so much since I've been with this group...Harpeth Hills...these ladies [are] my sisters."

This fall the group of a roughly a dozen women are working on a new project.

The women have created bundles of bible verses with similar themes: Courage, Comfort, Hope and Love. They call the tokens "God's Promise Rings."

"I hope God blesses us and they sell," Gates said.

The stores selling the gifts are Oak and Willow, Hot Pink, Sew What Gifts, Heriloom Shop and Katy's Hallmark.

The profits will go back in the pockets of women in the Napier community so they can support their families.
