The Palm Beach Church is excited to grow closer to our brothers and sisters in Jamaica. Jamaica Day 2016 is just one way we are trying to do this.
Funding: Funds for Jamaica Day 2016 were raised by a special contribution at the Palm Beach Church earlier this year, and earmarked for these efforts. In addition to this, a Jamaican Lunch will be held after church on October 30th and a Raffle will be held on November 28th. After both the lunch and the raffle, 100% of the proceeds will be used to support our growing cooperation with a family of six congregations in Jamaica (please visit http://www.kingstonchurchofchrist.org for more information).
Needs We Are Meeting: The Palm Beach Church is using these funds in several ways. On October 30, several sisters from the Palm Beach Church will be visiting Jamaica and speaking at a conference for women in Kingston. On November 25 & 26, eight people from the Palm Beach Church will be visiting Jamaica and speaking at a marriage enrichment seminar. Both of these events will draw participants from across Jamaica. In addition to our members travelling to Jamaica, we are also sending funds that will be used to offset some of the costs of the marriage enrichment seminar. By supporting the seminar with these funds, several married couples from the more remote areas of Jamaica will be able to travel to Kingston to enrich their marriages. We are excited to meet both spiritual and physical needs in this manner.
Raffle Prizes: Raffle prizes will include cash prizes, restaurant gift cards, hotel gift cards and other prizes donated by local businesses. Please visit this page later for a more detailed list of these prizes. The Raffle drawing will be held Monday, November 28th. The suggested donation of $1 is tax deductible and no more than 5,000 tickets will be sold before the Raffle.
Thank you for your support and prayers!
