Every year we gather together to celebrate what God has done through World Next Door and to dream about where he might take us next.  We call it our Annual Celebration and Fundraiser.

But that name is sort of dry.  It’s better to think about it as a birthday party!

On January 26, we had our third birthday party and it was a blast!  Live music, amazing soups and breads, a really cool photo gallery and, for the first time, live social media engagement.

But I know that a lot of our friends weren’t able to make it last Thursday, so I’ve put together a photo gallery of the event by one of our amazing volunteers, Jeremy VanAndal (you can check out his work at www.jeremyvanandelphoto.com).

And be sure to check out the great video by Mike “Mighty” Chandler below!

Next Steps
    • We are still a bit short of our financial goal for the fundraiser part of the night. If we are able to secure that final $9000, we’ll be able to fully fund the hiring of our new Communications Coordinator, cover our first quarter’s admin expenses and pay for summer internship flights. If you want to help us meet that goal, head over to www.worldnextdoor.org/give to see how to contribute!
    • One of the most important ways to get involved is through our prayer team (www.worldnextdoor.org/pray). We had several new people join the team last Thursday, and you are welcome to as well!
    • If you want any more information about this event, our 2012 plans or even just information about our organization in general, don’t hesitate to shoot us an email! info@worldnextdoor.org
