In 1997, Saint Timothy’s Episcopal Church had a fundraiser to benefit Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church in Grand Forks, North Dakota, after a terrible flood. We hoped to raise $2,000, and ended up sending them $16,340. Since then, our church has raised $556,600 to benefit over 22 different beneficiaries on a local, national, and global level. We are now entering our 20th year of Fruits of the Harvest (FOTH), coming together to work and play to benefit organizations that do incredible work for those in need. This will support these ministries through grants and with our hands-on projects.
We thank all our generous donors and volunteers. Our Parish has rallied to support Outreach even though our yearly allocation of $25,000 from the church budget has been cut due to the budget deficit. This year, we have almost $10,000 reinstated (plus $2,700 for other non-Outreach designated organizations), and we are so grateful, but we need your help as we still have to work hard to make up for the $15,000 in funds that we won’t have to help our brothers and sisters in great need.
Outreach Ministries: Many of the ministries we support are represented by a liaison who will be wearing a large pin for their organization so that you may ask about the important work of their ministries. We can become knowledgeable about them on the Beneficiaries page on this site.
Get ready to have fun: This is a great opportunity for fun and fellowship as the whole parish comes together to put on the event and newcomers can jump in and meet people. It involves a large number of volunteers who have a great time working together to do the work He has given us to do.
We go all out decorating the venue and ourselves according to our theme. As the Force leads you, come dressed for the Rebellion (good guys) or the Empire (bad guys) or come as the wonderful creature you are. Light sabers will have to be checked at the door. Invite your friends and neighbors to join us. We have extra invitations.
Here’s the launch plan: Everything will proceed as we have foreseen.
- Silent Auction
- Wall of Wine
- No Host Mos Eisley Cantina (Aliens and Droids welcome!)
Don’t miss our biggest fundraiser and party of the year for Outreach Ministries.
