We were thrilled to host 420 guests at our March 14 banquet, and heard many positive comments, such as this one:
“The banquet was great! It is important to get people motivated to take action on things and not just write the check (like we have been doing). The message [by Dave Bereit of 40 Days for Life, shown at right] and rest of the program was a good way to spark the fire for involvement in compassion ministries in our communities and around the world.”
You’ll be pleased to know that the banquet brought in over $77,000 (before expenses). That includes donations that night, as well as pledges and underwriting gifts. More is coming in and we expect the total to reach $80,000. Praise the Lord! This is a great encouragement to our staff and board.
Many also committed to being prayer partners and requested information about Life Matters Worldwide, our special projects, and the upcoming Classic at Pilgrim’s Run on Monday, August 12.
Please mark your calendar for next year’s banquet where we’ll celebrate 30 years of ministry. It's planned for March 13 at Frederik Meijer Gardens. Our featured speaker will be Dr. Joseph Stowell, president of Cornerstone University.
