Pasta Dinner is coming!


Can you smell it? Can you taste it!? Pasta? Meat? Spaghetti sauce? And dessert! Lots and lots of desserts! Desserts as far as the eye can see! And all of this to help further the Kingdom!

We serve an amazing God, and He is working! This year we are sending out nearly 60 adults and students from OneEightyOne student ministries to Washington DC and Indianapolis. Members of our church will be showing God’s love to those in need in practical ways like helping to clean, do yard work, and paint. They will be praying with strangers and sharing the gospel with them on the street. We are setting out to be used by God to change the lives of others, but we will also return changed!

And we need your help! This Sunday is our annual pasta dinner and dessert auction; one of our biggest fund raisers of the year. We will raise a significant portion of our funds during this event. So what can you do to help?

Well, first off, you can buy a ticket and come eat lunch on Sunday. You can invite others to come enjoy lunch; friends, family, even strangers! Invite that neighbor that you’ve been witnessing to and pay for their ticket! After lunch you can bid on one (or more, we won’t judge!) of the dozens of amazing, homemade desserts that are part of the auction! Eating carbs and dessert for Jesus? Does life get any better?!?

Second, we could use help setting up, preparing, and serving. On Saturday, the 28th, we will be doing the bulk of our set up from 9am-11am. Tables, chairs, and decorations all need to go up along with dessert tables, serving lines, and drink stations. Come and serve, we could use “all hands on deck”!

Then on Sunday, we will be finishing set up at 10:45am so that we are ready to serve the masses at 12:30. We need hands to help finish set up, plating food during the meal, serving drinks, and clean up.

If you have already agreed to help with set up, serving on Sunday, or are making something for the auction, thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!!!! We couldn’t do it without you! If you haven’t, and you want to, well come on by on Saturday or Sunday morning to lend a hand (hopefully two)!

Finally, and most importantly, pray. Pray that God will move in the hearts of all those attending to be generous with their giving; Not for us, for God and His glory! Then pray that God would lead you how to you can best help and give.


Thank you!
