St. Paul’s Cruise ‘n Barbecue
to Benefit many People through the Helping Hands Ministry!
Planning is well underway for one of St. Paul’s signature events – the 2018 Cruise ‘n Barbecue, to be held on Saturday, April 28th!
The proceeds from this year’s event will go to St. Paul’s Helping Hands Fund which is available to meet acute financial needs of individuals and families in the congregation and community. The fund is faithfully administered by a committee that includes our Parish Nurse, Finance Chairman, Pastor and other volunteers from the congregation. Confidential requests made to a committee member are followed by discussions with the applicant to determine how needs can best be met through Helping Hands and/or other community resources. This insures that disbursements (made only by check) provide the best possible outcome for the recipient as well as wise stewardship of funds.
Many people have benefitted from the Helping Hands Fund over the years. We are honored as a congregation to have this opportunity to show God’s love to others with our support of this vital ministry through the Cruise ‘n Barbecue.
Once again this year, the day’s events will begin at 9:00 a.m. with an all new Poker Cruise route that will take participants through some of Rowan County’s most beautiful countryside. The Car Show as well as serving of Port-a-Pit chicken dinners will begin at 11 a.m. and continue until 3 p.m. at which time trophies will be awarded, followed by drawings for the always awesome raffle prize packages contributed by individuals and organizations. In the meantime, there will be plenty of music, ice cream, baked goods and other activities to be enjoyed throughout the day! Click here for the Registration Form.
Having so many willing volunteers allows everyone to have an opportunity to enjoy the day. Please fill out the Volunteer Sign Up Form to indicate how you would like to help. Many people will have the opportunity to benefit from the love that you show to others in support of the Helping Hands Fund.
