Pray about it and see if this is something God is calling you to do.

***Community Event – Esther House Bar-B-Que – Friday, September 24th
Hey guys!  My name is Shannon Thompson.  I’m the Program & Volunteer Coordinator for the Esther House.  We serve victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking in Stanly and Montgomery County.  We’d like to invite your congregation to participate in our upcoming BBQ fundraiser.  
There are several ways you can support us; 
First, it would be so helpful if you’d mention this to your congregation.  Tickets will be available for purchase on Monday, August 16th.  
And secondly, we need volunteers the day of the event!  There are all kinds of roles we’ll need from food prep & packaging to driving delivery routes in our local area.  
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call our office at 704-961-7502.
