 FUNDRAISING DETP. JAN-FEB NEWSLETTER
 
The Super Bowl Week-end was a delight experience for Emmanuel French SDA Church. As a winning team we have the benefit of being at the forefront promoting spiritual, educational, and recreational activities that allow us to serve the Lord and enhance our growth as a Christian community. With Jesus-Christ on our side we embraced the opportunity to move to the finish line and score.
We started our Stewardship Day on Saturday Jan 31st with the focus on equipping our members to be pleased about the principles of ownership and responsibility that are so fundamental for building healthy and vigorous congregations. Many members have devoted time and talent to the success of that day. We also had the privilege to host many speakers in special presentations, and with a spirit of gratitude and humility we want to thank:
  • Pastor Jules Herve Gelin , the worship service Preacher who as a reputation of serving the aperitifs (practical biblical appetizers) right before introducing the congregation to the main course  sermon (Fidèles Jusqu’à la Mort), Faithful until Death,  in which he admonished the participants to assess the biblical perspective of stewardship.  It was a real blessing to enjoy the Gelin Family fellowship throughout the entire day.
 
  • Dr Leslie Theodore, our communication/web ministry director, who continues to motivate the congregation in their service to the Lord. He presented spotlight on the church website as a tool for Evangelism and education. We bless the Lord for his inspiration.
 
  • Brother Jude Herve Alexandre, the afternoon speaker who introduced the congregation to practical Credit Awareness, as part of series on debt education. The participants received valuable insights about the correlation between credit management and financial stability.  We have been privileged to work with the Alexandre family as members of Team Emmanuel.                     To God be the glory!
 
 
 
 
The next day was super bowl Sunday for so many, but also Bouncing Sunday for Emmanuel French SDA church. Who would have thought that you can be bouncing and raising fund for a church construction project? That was exactly the successful experience of 25 young and adults of our congregation at the Trampoline Park in Soysset.  We graciously want to thank all participants including Pastor Judson Ariste and family, Emmanuel Youth Department, and several parents and their children.  Most of all we want to express our appreciation to the following teamates:
  • Sister Marla Roy for her esprit de corps, her enthusiasm, and her generosity. She came up with the idea of unlocking such great opportunity for our church fundraising team, and she worked hard to make it a reality. Praise the Lord!
 
  • Marla’s family and friends for their support, dedication, and contribution.
 
 
God has been good to our team again and again. Let’s continue to honor him through our daily lives of service to him and the support, love, and appreciation for each other. “Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success” Henry Ford
 
May God bless you all!
