THE SOLOMON FOUNDATION INFORMATIONAL DINNER, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 28, 6:30 PM: Held at West Valley Christian Church (see link below for directions), the purpose of the dinner is to give a detailed look at a ministry called The Solomon Foundation. They are known as a Church Extension Fund which provides funding for Christian Church and Church of Christ churches, as well as Christian universities throughout the US. In fact, Dave Hamilton was here a few weeks ago to talk about The Solomon Foundation but you may not have been able to get more information from him while he was here. This is an opportunity to find out everything you would like to know as well as a question and answer time.

 

If you would like to know more about them or how you can be a part of helping churches grow and reach people for Christ, please click on the link below and register to be at the dinner. There is no cost for the dinner so just bring your appetite as well as a friend to hear about all the great things they are doing to impact the Kingdom and how you can play a part as well. Please go to https://wa225.infusionsoft.com/app/form/dinners-with-ceo-church-link.
