November 2017 Year-End Giving
“Out of them shall come songs of thanksgiving, and the voices of those who celebrate”
– Jeremiah 20:19 ESV
There are many “themes” within Fresh Start that capture various aspects of the Lord’s heart, and what it really means to be FORGIVEN, FORGIVING and FREE!
One of my favorites is the theme of CELEBRATION… whether it is celebrating a new Fresh Start expression, a recent story of a man, woman or young person who has experienced healing and hope for their heart, a “praise and progress” report from one of our National or International Fresh Start Ambassadors, or the development of a new Fresh Start resource, perspective or insight – we love to CELEBRATE all of this and MORE!
In God’s word we see a story of celebration in Luke Chapter 15 – The Story of The Prodigal Son. What a beautiful picture of the Father heart of God that is reflected in this passage, as the Father extravagantly CELEBRATES the return of His lost son! What better reason to throw a party? A party that celebrates FORGIVENESS and RECONCILIATION!
Every year, Fresh Start For All Nations throws a party that celebrates this very same thing – and MUCH MORE.
It is a truly wonder-FULL evening of reflecting on the previous year and looking forward to the next as we APPRECIATE, ANTICIPATE and CELEBRATE together.
This year’s Fresh Start Celebration Banquet will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2018 from 5:30pm-8:30pm at the Scott Conference Center in Omaha, Nebraska. Registration information will be available early in 2018, so SAVE THE DATE, and we hope to see you there – to CELEBRATE together!
And while you are at it, you can also add the 2018 Fresh Start Classic to your calendar: The 2018 Fresh Start Golf Classic – Monday, July 30, 2018 – Shadow Ridge Country Club – Omaha, Nebraska.
Thank you SO MUCH for your care, prayer, partnership, service and investment in this Divine Mission to SPREAD THE FIRE of the TRANSFORMING POWER of FORGIVENESS.
We CELEBRATE THE LORD – and we CELEBRATE YOU!
Pastor Steve and Mindy on behalf of the Fresh Start Team
