Next Friday: Fun Night, African Cuisine, Great Cause

Make you plans now to join us at the St. John Campus for an African Dinner next Friday night.  There will also be a silent auction with some really incredible items.

The Cause:  “Impact Liberia” is our original and major partner in Liberia.  We support their ministry out of our missions budget and now their supporting churches are trying to help them fund things that are too big to fit in their budget.  We want to give them the funds they need to FINISH their building project…work that will be done in correlation with a team going there this fall.  We also are working to bring their family back to the United States for their missionary “furlough”.

The Food:  If you were at this dinner a couple years ago, you know the food was incredible.  You’ll get an authentic (and delicious) African meal prepared by some who have been on our trips…and have excellent culinary gifts.

The Auction:  A part of the fundraising aspect is a silent auction. There is no pressure to bid, but you can walk away with some great deals on cool stuff:  Massages, Cubs tickets, Sox Tickets, Artwork, ‘Night out” downtown Chicago, gift certificates water park and golfing, Jewelry, tools,  Some very nice items. And, of course, every dollar goes to this very worthy cause.

The Details:  Friday, May 20.  Arrive at 6:00pm.  Dinner at 6:30. Presentation at 7:00.  Silent Auction in 3 cycles at 7:45/8:00/8:15.  Tickets are $10/person and are available by contacting and at all campuses on Sundays.

I will be at an out of town wedding on Saturday, but am staying in town Friday night just for this.  Hope to see you there!
