Every year, St. Francis Prayer Center holds its annual fundraiser. This event helps us achieve the necessary funding for continuation of our various ministries and remain a spiritual presence in our community as well as providing help for those who are less fortunate.
This year we are thrilled to announce a change in the timing of our Annual Dinner. The Dinner will be held:
SATURDAY, September 28, 2019 at St. John Davison – The Theme this year is The Great Gatsby!
Tickets are sold for $100 each (which entitles 2 people to attend dinner) and we raffle off up to $7,000 in prizes!
Each year a different theme is selected and those who come often dress accordingly. It’s a fun-filled evening full of fellowship, eating, auctions (both live and silent) and dancing!
We have many volunteers who work tirelessly to put on this event and many businesses and individuals who contribute donations for the auctions and purchase raffle tickets.
The Revival Dream
Long after my original interviews with the SFPC Board in early 2011, I had a most unusual dream. The location was the Prayer Center. There were many different Pastors and Prayer Team people ministering to various persons, and children getting painted faces everywhere you looked. Music was lively and everyone was eating something! I heard the words repeated, “feed my people.” Again and again those words kept coming back to me. When I awoke I was quite perplexed. By that time Sr. Ruthann had been hired, and I had not thought of the Prayer Center for many months. Fast forward to September 2012. In an unexpected turn of events, the Board asked me to take the Directorship of the Center. The following summer (2013) we brought the dream to life. The Holy Spirit then clarified for me that ‘feed my people’ meant in all kinds of ways. Literally with food, compassionately by listening, spiritually by praying for them, joyfully in play and fun for the whole family. God had a plan for His people and what a plan it was!!
Thanksgiving and Christmas ADOPT a Family
As most of us understand, the holidays can be the most difficult time for some families. We do our best in North Flint to bless local families with food and gifts at this time of year. Thanks to the generosity of donors throughout the year, we are able to serve this need.
We need lots of volunteers for this mission!
