We have something very special happening on Saturday, September 30th. Two of our largest independently held fundraising events are happening simultaneously in different counties! Crazy, right?!!
In Henderson County, the Stronghurst and Media community churches are hosting their annual chicken and noodle dinner for OFOP, and in Hancock County, George Link and the Burnside Christian Church are holding their annual fish fry, also for OFOP.
While the simultaneous scheduling of these events by their respective planners were certainly not intentional, it is our belief that God will truly bless their efforts in a big way this year, and He’ll do it through people like you.
September 30th has now become a night of prayer and communion. Beginning at exactly 4pm, we would ask that you join us from wherever you are, and go to the Lord in prayer, asking Him to bless the efforts of these volunteers that evening. We’ll be asking for God to once again work miracles in the hearts and lives of those involved with this years project, including the donors, volunteers, the volunteer’s families, the people of the community we build in, and of course, the family who will be receiving the home. This is something you can do from your home, your work, the vehicle…literally wherever you are. It is prayer that has brought abundant blessings to this ministry, and it is prayer that will continue the work for years to come.
If there are circumstances preventing you from praying at 4pm that night, pray earlier, later, and continuously throughout the evening. We ask that you make a consious effort to keep an open dialogue with the Lord that night.
Finally, we ask that you attend and commune with these fellow supporters and volunteers. Whichever event you choose to attend, attend with a deliberate intention to commune with the Lord, and with brothers and sisters in the faith. Pray alone, pray with others, go in the kitchen and pray with those who are serving the food. Walk a circle around the event as you pray for what is happening inside the walls. Act as the Lord leads you to act, wherever and whatever that looks like!
Prayer is a gift that is too often overlooked and taken for granted. For at least this one night, we encourage you to keep it in the center of your mind. Perhaps it will lead to many more nights of communion and prayer.
Brochures for both events are below. We truly hope to see you at one or both events, if for no other reason than to pray with us! God bless you all!
