FUNDRAISING for 2017-18 School Year  (Give a monthly $10 donation for 10 months)

We are in major need of your financial support this school year. Our prayer is that 100 people would commit to giving just $10 a month for 10 months. (September 2017 thru June 2018) On average Lit City impacts the lives about 300 students a month. Your giving will help us provide meals for our after-school club meetings on the campuses of about 5 schools, pay for educational, fun, & spiritually enriching field trips & retreats, provide key leaders with small stipends, fund community events & concerts, & so much more throughout the school year! To give visit www.loveoutloudws.com/give Enter the amount you'd like to contribute, designate the donation for "lit city", set it as a monthly gift.

MENTORING/Advocacy
30-for-30 Campaign.

(Training on Tuesday September 12th 7pm-9pm)

This year's #CampClutch is in the books but the relationship building with campers is far from over! We need 30 men to invest in 30 campers for the 2017-18 school year as mentors/advocates. 30-for-30. No saviors or heroes needed. Just humble dudes willing to build with & advocate for marginalized kids in solidarity with their parents. Our mentoring/advocacy philosophy is founded on two passages of scripture: 
 

1 Thessalonians 2:8: "Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well."

Isaiah 1:17: "Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow."

Together these verses call us to serve through relationship-building, sharing the Story of Jesus, & advocacy work. We ask the mentors be able to commit to meeting with their mentees about 3x a month from late September - early August of 2018.  A mandatory training will be held for prospective mentors/advocates on Tuesday, September 12th from 7pm-9pm at the Winston-Salem Street School as well. If you plan to attend plz text your name to 336-750-6266 or email thawkins@loveoutloudws.com to register.
