“And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to me’.” ~ Matthew 25:40
On Thursday October 17, 2019 at 6:00pm First Choice for Women will hold its Annual Fundraising Banquet at the Horizon Convention Center, located at 401 N High Street in Muncie Indiana. The evening will be a time of glorifying God and highlighting what He is doing through the ministry. It is typically an adult’s only event with a complimentary dinner, there is no financial obligation to you or your guests; however, there will be an opportunity to present a one-time gift offering, as well as an opportunity to become a sustaining partner of First Choice for Women. We believe that through His people God will provide for the needs of this ministry and those served by it.
Reservations are required by Thursday October 3, 2019. Seating is limited, RSVP TODAY!
Featuring guest Speaker Amy Ford
Amy Ford is a nationally recognized speaker and the Co-Founder and President of Embrace Grace, a national non-profit that inspires and equips the church to love and show compassion to pregnant and single young women and their families. She brings a fresh perspective to how one life can make a difference by stepping out of our comfort zones and just loving people. She is also the author of A Bump in Life: True Stories of Hope & Courage during an Unplanned Pregnancy.
Serving in Embrace Grace, she has countless stories of how churches, pregnancy centers and the body of Christ have come together to impact communities in a beautiful way. Going through an unplanned pregnancy in her teens was one of the hardest times in her life. She remembers well how lonely and ashamed she felt. Looking back on those 9 months of brokenness fueled her passion and desire to change things for young women with unplanned pregnancies.
Amy and her friend Salina started a small group at Gateway Church that met weekly with girls in similar situations; providing support, friendship, guidance and love. A few years later, in 2012, Embrace Grace began equipping churches all around the country with a pro-love focus, helping women to be brave and to choose life! Since then thousands of women have gone through the Embrace Grace program and were put back on a path towards Jesus.
Currently, the program is in nearly 500 churches across the nation, in 47 states and 8 countries. The heart of Embrace Grace is to make the church one of the first places a young woman runs to, instead of the last because of shame and guilt.
Amy has been married for over 20 years to her high school sweetheart, Ryan, and has 4 children. The Ford family resides in Dallas/Fort Worth area in Texas.
WE NEED YOU!
We are always looking for individuals and organizations who would like to help First Choice for Women spread the word about our ministry by serving as Table Hosts, or supporting the event as a Table Sponsor, Banquet Sponsor or Silent Auction Donor.
Table Hosts are asked to invite 7 friends or family members to sit with them at their table. There is no financial obligation in serving as a table host and all of the materials needed are provided to them by First Choice. Table Sponsors would provide the cost of the meals served at one or more tables; approximately $250 per table. While a Banquet Sponsor would help underwrite the event and empower First Choice to serve the hundreds of young women who come to us each year facing an unplanned pregnancy.
If you are interested in serving as a table host or learning more about becoming a banquet sponsorship and the levels associated with that, please call Lisa Miller at (765)286-6085, email us at email@example.com, or complete the “Contact Us” section on this page and note how you would like to help in the comment box.
