Hello! I hope you are all enjoying this Lenten season by reconnecting with Christ and all of the blessed wonders our Lord has bestowed upon us. Although Easter is definately our "holiday priority" right now, I am writing to invite each of you to participate in a matter that is close to my heart...Project Christmas Smile. Last year, Project Christmas Smile helped bring a memorable Christmas to 25 needy children in our area. I speak for myself, the committee, and also Ed when I say this day was one of the most magical days any of us have ever witnessed. The sheer joy and excitement written on each tiny face was worth every minute spent on the project. So many members of Cove helped in so many ways and I honestly cannot thank you enough. However, we need your help again to make Christmas wishes come true this year.
The committee is ready to begin Project Christmas Smile 2009 and intends to kick off the program by hosting a spaghetti dinner on Sunday, April 19th immediately following church until 4:00 p.m. Again...we need your help! The committee wants this to be a successful fundraiser and in order for that to happen, we cannot do it alone. We need our church family to assist in our efforts. We are asking that each family try to sell 4 tickets to family, friends, neighbors, or even co-workers. The more ticket sales that are generated, the more money we can earn to grow our project. If this is something you feel called to do, please feel free to sell the tickets and return the money by Monday, April 13th to the church office. If you cannot sell the tickets, I truly understand and would appreciate the tickets returned to the church by the same date (Monday, April 13th). I know that many of you have expressed interest on how you can help with Project Christmas Smile and this is a great way to put forth a little time to "pass along" along one of the messages Christ was brought on this Earth to proclaim...administer to those less fortunate.
The details of the 2009 Cove Church Spaghetti Dinner are as follows:
Where: Cove Presbyterian Church
When: Sunday, April 19th
Time: Noon-4 p.m.
Take Out is Available!
Again, thank you for your time and I look forward to seeing you all at the dinner.
