Celebration Banquet

The Peachtree City SDA Church began the initiative in March of this year and chose to invite representatives from the three non-profits to the Celebration Banquet.  The agency representatives included Cathy Berggren, Executive Director of The Real Life Center; Traci Corné, Executive Director of Coweta CASA; and, Mike Sorrow, Executive Director  of Southwest Christian Care.

Church members and invited guests dined on a delicious vegetarian meal while celebrating where the church is today and how the church wants to move forward with its new mission and vision.  The church’s mission statement is “to invite our community into a redemptive relationship with Jesus Christ, welcoming people from all walks of life to experience unconditional acceptance with a loving church family.”

After dinner, a short program commenced including music and inspiring messages from church members with the highlight of the celebratory evening being the presentation of checks to each of the three non-profits.  The church was able to give $1,000 checks to each of the non-profit agencies and also promised additional funds from the current stewardship initiative as well as continued support in years to come.  The church’s members will also be actively pursuing volunteer opportunities at each non-profit.
