Walk-a-Thon for Adoption!

I don't think it's any secret that our lives have been radically changed since we heard God's call to adopt and started the adoption process in July of 2010.  We are super passionate about advocating for the orphans around the world.  Many of you may have a heart for orphans too, but don't feel like God has called your family to adopt.  My friends..  there are so many ways that you can have a part in advocating for the orphans around the world and helping them to be placed in forever families.  Our church (Pathway Community Church) has an adoption ministry (True Vine) that is sponsoring a Walk-A-Thon on Saturday, September 8 at 9:00 am to support adoptive families and to aid the fatherless at home and around the world.  True Vine offers matching grants for adopting families, offers a post-adoption support group that’s open to the community, and last spring, shared over $3,000 for shoes, craft supplies, playground, and farming equipment for an orphanage in India.

So how can you help?  Here are 3 ways..  

(1)       Register to Walk:  Go to the PCC website and click on the "Caring for Orphans" link (http://www.pccfw.org/upcoming-events/step-by-step-walk-a-thon-adoption-fundraiser). Then just follow the registration instructions to "Join the Team".
  •  To Contact Sponsors:  Contact friends and family, and simply direct them to the PCC site ("Caring for Orphans"link) to make a donation in support of adoption. You can make a donation to support yourself as well.
·        It takes just a few minutes for sponsors to make a credit card donation.
·        Raise $100 or more and earn a True Vine walk-a-thon T-shirt to wear on the day of the event.

(2)       DONATE HERE!

(3)       Come Out & Walk:  Join your fellow walkers for the walk:

·        WHEN:  Saturday, September 8th at 8:45 a.m. (The walk itself will begin at 9:00).
·        WHERE:  Parkview YMCA in Fort Wayne, IN (Meet in the parking lot)
·        DISTANCE:  Approximately 1.5 miles on a paved path

…It’s that simple. By taking just a few easy steps, you can help make a lasting impact on orphans and other children in need.

All funds raised will go to True Vine Ministries, helping children in need at home and abroad.
