Foster/Adoption Home Fundraiser, Eagle, Colorado
Who would have thought the idea of a little talent show in
our sweet church, Grace Fellowship, would morph into a fantastic fundraising
event for the Dike family? Pastor Dan Rohlwing was inspired to take that quaint
notion and use it to God’s glory. The Dikes have adopted six kids this past
year or so, and needed a van big enough to carry their family all together. This
was the perfect venue to raise some funds to help with that.
With many hours of volunteering from the members of Grace
Fellowship, the evening hosted a silent auction, the talent show, and lots of
fun food. The cherry on top, of course, was a spirit filled mini-concert by
award-winning Christian artist (and close family friend of the Dikes), Michael
The event was held at Brush Creek Pavilion, in Eagle,
Colorado, and had a great turnout from not only our church, but from the local
community, who know the Dikes well and love them.
Nancy Kraft spearheaded the food committee and offered
walking tacos (the better to peruse all the auction items) and a delicious array
of sweet goodies. The silent auction had items ranging from signed books to a
week’s vacation in Costa Rica. The talent show featured singers, skits, and
family acts, followed by the concert by Michael W. Smith that moved the
audience to tears and worship. What an evening!
