“A Night to Shine” and “A Christmas Story…As Told by You and Me.”

A Night to Shine”and  “The Christmas Story…As Told By You and Me.”

So Christmas is gone just as quickly as it came. For so many people the month of February is when the real meaning of Christmas is accessed. That is when the credit card bill for December is due and when the Christmas spirit may be questioned. I know you, like myself and my family would love to make Christmas different, to make it life changing and to make the amazing truths of Christmas part of our lives all year long.

That is why we’ve given this years Advent Celebration the theme “The Christmas Story…As Told By You and Me.” Over the last few weeks we have been looking at words like “Availability”, “Humility”, Generosity, Visibility, and Intensity”. Our hope is that our study has challenged each us to be different people. Jesus Christ came into the world not to maintain the status quo but to change the world, to change us, to change the world through us.

One area we can make a huge difference in is with reference to individuals with disabilities or special needs. One event that gives us a great opportunity in this arena is “A Night to Shine, A Prom Like Event for Individuals with Special Needs 14-30 years of age”. The event last year, sponsored by Calvary locally and by the Tim Tebow nationally was a huge success. It affirmed those in attendance as unique and important, it proclaimed to our borough loud and clear that God’s church wasn’t neglecting the least of these, and it helped us to minister for Jesus, like Jesus and as Jesus. Regretfully we had to turn some people away because we ran out of room. That will not be the case this year. We will have plenty of room for everyone as we have reserved the entire Staaten.

Our cost this year for this event are as you can imagine substantial. The Tebow Foundation is giving us a wonderful grant  as is the Richmond Bank Foundation  and other local foundations have given as well but we still really your help.  

Please pray with us for the provision of these funds. Please participate with us and prayerfully provide these funds like you did last year. It is a simple but powerful way to live out “The Christmas Story…As Told By Me and You.”
