Ephesians 2:10 says “For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.” The Way 2 Serve Ministries desires to share the love of Jesus in practical ways. We can not do that without you! We are so thankful that God has prepared good works in advance for you to do.
Participation from the Opelika/Auburn area churches and ministries in the My Jerusalem projects has been tremendous over the past few years as more and more churches become aware of this opportunity to serve. Because we need more people in the community to know about and financially support The Way 2 Serve Ministries we are pleased to announce our upcoming 4th Annual Support Dinner.
This year’s event will be held on Thursday, September 6, 2012, at The Event Center Opelika at 614 North Railroad Avenue. This special evening will begin at 6:30 pm and include dinner, dessert, and guest speaker. The guest speaker this year is Danny Wuerffel. Danny won the Heisman Trophy in 1996 while playing for the Florida Gators. He later went on to play in the National Football League for the New Orleans Saints, the Green Bay Packers, the Chicago Bears, and the Washington Redskins. He walked away from the National Football League in 2002 to do ministry with Desire Street Ministries. He is now the Executive Director of Desire Street Ministries, a Christian charity whose mission is to encourage and equip leaders to transform impoverished neighborhoods through spiritual and community development. The night will include Danny challenging us to “Get in the Game” here in our community.
In order for our event to be successful, we need your help! If you’ve ever wanted to share the love of Jesus in practical ways, consider hosting a table at our event or contributing financially as a corporate sponsor.
If you accept our invitation to host a table, we ask that you fill your table with ten guests (12 can be accommodated at some tables), including yourself. Guests should be ministry minded and made aware that this is our main avenue of raising financial support. We ask that table hosts make a minimum contribution of $200. We are attempting to arrange a meet and greet time with Danny from 5-6 pm on the night of the banquet. We will have a dessert prayer meeting on Thursday, July 26th at 7 pm to discuss details, pray for the event and speaker, and fellowship.
If you’d like to contribute financially, but hosting a table isn’t for you, consider becoming a corporate sponsor. Sponsorship can come in three ways: Major Sponsors with a gift of $2000 or more, Supporting Sponsors with a gift of $1000 or more, or Contributing Sponsors with a gift of $500 or more. Your support will be used to underwrite the costs of the event. Then all monies raised the night of the event will directly support The Way 2 Serve Ministries. Your generosity will be acknowledged on our program and website. We would love for you to attend the event as well as invite friends. And as always your gift is tax deductible.
A representative of The Way Ministries will contact you in the next two weeks to discuss this opportunity to assist in Sharing the Love of Jesus in Practical Ways. If you would like to learn more about hosting a table or sponsoring the event, you may also contact Brandi Kyles at 334-741-8432 or through e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in being involved as a corporate sponsor or in being a table host, please contact us as soon as possible…Even before we contact you would be GREAT! Detailed information regarding the event is in the attachment to this e-mail. If you are unable to be a table host, but know of people you would like to invite, please contact us with that information as well.
We are eager, as always, to see what the Lord is going to do. It is only through His strength and power that this night can be a success. Please join us in this fund-raiser and be a part of all God will do through our obedience!
