HI IDX! SAVE THE DATE FOR OPERATION:SERVE, SATURDAY APRIL 30TH!
I wanted to write you all quick note about an exciting fundraiser that has come together so quickly, only God could have done it!
Every summer we intentionally seek time away from the “normal” to spend time with our leaders and students at BREAKAWAY (Sr. High) and THE EDGE (Jr. High) Conferences. This year we’ve added a 3rd element, a MISSION trip to work with a relational based ministry in downtown Chattanooga, TN. For all three of these trips, we believe that God does really great things to encourage and build up our hearts when as a ministry we can live together for 5 straight days.
We tell everyone, new and old, that the fastest and boldest way to get to know others in IDX and to build lasting relationships, is to join us for one of these trips. However, we know that finances are always a part of the equation. It is IDX Student Ministries’ desire that we consciously make decisions about events throughout the year based on not wanting to burden our families financially.
To that end, we’ve come up with a fund-raising project that we think can benefit a large portion of our students, as well as our cities of Atlanta and Tucker.
HOW IT WORKS
On SATURDAY APRIL 30TH IDX Student Ministries will SERVE the city. As a ministry we’ll be divided up into teams and scattered across the city to serve ministries, non-profits and Intown Church members.
You’ll be serving for 8 hours (9am-5pm) in various activities of construction, cleaning, and relationship building.
How can you raise money doing this? Simple! By contacting friends, family, neighbors, etc. and asking them to sponsor your work hours, you’ll be able to earn money for your trip(s)!
For example – if your neighbor sponsors you for $5 an hour, that’s $40 ($5x8hours) towards your trips! These ministries are given much needed man power and in return you gain access to the ways God is moving in and around Atlanta, as well as earning money for your trips(s).
