Reaching to Russia - Cakes!

Cake!  Few things touch the depth of our being like it does.  So soft.  So sweet.  So delicious.  And so powerful!  Powerful?  Yes, powerful.  This Sunday night, November 4, at Greater Atlanta Christian School’s Student Family Center from 6 to 8.30 p.m., YouthReach International will carry out our 4th Annual Orphan Sunday Cake Auction.  All funds raised this evening empower YouthReach’s Orphan Sponsorship Program.  Last year, $10000 was brought in allowing us to directly impact 23 orphans in Russia and Ukraine by giving them a US sponsor that prays for them, communicates with them, and encourages the mentors who work with them.    

 

 

Please join us for a meal provided by the Community Church of Christ at 6 p.m. followed by worship and communion before the cake auctioneer takes his stand.  Though he has tried to retire for 3 straight years, the auctioneer from past years will again join us this year. 

 

Here’s how it works.  Bake a cake, bring it with you in a container you don’t mind not going home with, and we will auction it off.  Be ready to bid and buy cakes that others have made too.  Past years have seen such monuments as the Siberian Mountain Cake, 19 Layer Chocolate Cake, Birds of a Feather Cake, and a Strawberry Surprise Cake.  Who knows what joys await us this year.

 

After the auction is over we will share the cakes we’ve bought with each other.  If there are any leftovers you are welcome to take them home.  Coffee will be provided along with the cake.

 

It’s a great night of fun for all ages.  Please connect with your Paula Dean/Martha Stewart side this week in preparation and consider joining us at 6 p.m. on Sunday.  It’ll bring comfort to your stomach and hope to orphans.  That’s not a bad combo.

 

Please RSVP to info@youthreach.org if plan to come so we can plan accordingly for the meal.  Looking forward to seeing you there!

 

Greater Atlanta Christian School is located at 1575 Indian Trail Road Norcross, GA  30093.
