Restaurant Night and Silent Auction to Benefit Youth Group MissionsMarch 2012
Join us for Redeemer Youth Ministry’s third annual benefit prix-fixe dinner, inspired by NYC Restaurant Week, on Saturday, March 24. Dinner will be served by students and youth leaders, who will prepare and serve a three-course dinner including choice of appetizer, main entrée, and dessert with coffee or tea. Proceeds raised from the event will further our partnership with the Rock Primary School in Uganda, help support the Student Scholarship Fund, as well as kick-start this summer’s domestic mission trip to Lincoln Village, AL.
This year, further enthusiasm will be brought to Restaurant Night through a Silent Auction. The auction will open online on Monday, March 12, and the silent auction will begin at 6:00 PM on March 24 at the W83 Ministry Center. In conjunction with the auction, we have commissioned a graphic artist to create a Youth “Signature” piece based upon Matthew 6:19-34. Our hope is that this will hang in every home in the Youth Community. Letter pressed prints will be sold online and at the auction, with an opportunity to purchase framed prints for youth families who cannot afford to purchase the art at this time. Alongside our “Signature” piece, people may bid on other works of art, as well as helpful services, and a few “priceless” experiences.
Partnership in Uganda.
Last July, our youth mission team of twelve (youth leaders and high school students) traveled to Uganda for a second visit to our partnering schools there: the TAOST school in Jinja, and the Rock Primary School in Lawanda. While there we led a Vacation Bible School program, made craft projects (batik and jewelry making) with primary school children. Some taught a sewing class for the adult ladies, while others cleared and planted a demonstration plot, and painted the Rock Primary church/school. Perhaps more importantly Redeemer’s Youth Community through our work and relationships became even more invested in the future of our Ugandan friends and look forward to returning in the summer of 2013.
There are many opportunities throughout the year to support the efforts of Redeemer’s Youth. Whether by supporting a student in NYC through the Youth Scholarship Fund, contributing to this summer’s domestic mission trip to Lincoln Village, AL or continuing to help our friends in Uganda create a sustainable school program, the students in our church are seeking to live out the Gospel with their friends, city and the world. For the last three years our community has raised funds to purchase classroom items, musical instruments for a choir and music program, and children’s books to help fill library bookshelves at the TAOST school. Now, with sole focus on Care and Share/Rock Primary we are encouraged that this community school is now in session and growing! This is hugely exciting because they have gotten there largely on their own. The Redeemer Youth Group invites you to join us in praising Him and supporting others as we seek to follow Jesus’ command and “do for the least of these.” (Mt. 25:40)
