“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
PROUD sponsors Stacey Woods and Nacy Harper stand on one of drain boxes they modified to meet state code at The Way`s new building site. Stacey says, “I am always glad to help when I can. I’m so happy to see The Way reach out to the youth now and in the future.” Nacy said, “I enjoy giving back to the community and to help get The Way started.” They both agreed that The Way will benefit the youth of Trigg County for a long time.
The Way Christian Youth Center is thankful beyond words for free labor and/or equipment usage and expertise provided by Mitchell Construction (Thomas and Stoney Mitchell and team) of Cadiz and P’pool Concrete (James P’Pool) of Louisville. These companies talked with Sister Martha Davis and wanted to give back to the Community where they live (Mirchell’s) and/or have friends (P’Pool).
The Way thanks Coldwell Banker Service 1st Realty and owners Betty and JR Ricks (pictured ) for being proud sponsors of its ministry. Coldwell Banker believes they are the ultimate resource for professional real estate information and services for both buyers and sellers in the Cadiz- Trigg County and Western Kentucky area. They also strive to be the number one source for waterfront, bacation, and retirement homes on Lake Barkley. The Way thanks Coldwell Banker for its financial sponsorship, but also Betty Ricks for her invaluable guidance and assistance in helping with property transactions and related matters. Thank you, Coldwell 1st Realty and the Rick’s Family.
Volunteers for The Way will soon contact area businesses to raise money for a new youth center behind the Trigg County school campus.
The ministry estimates it will take approximately $450,000 to build the 11,800-square-foot facility. Thanks to countless fundraisers and the generosity of individual donors and area churches, The Way has already raised $220,000.
“We’re almost halfway to our ultimate goal,” explains Martha Davis, cochairperson of the fundraising committee. “However, with another $30,000, we can secure a bank loan. We hope local businesses will help us get there – and beyond – through their sponsorships.”
Businesses donating at least $100 will be considered sponsors. A business donating $100 to $499 will be designated a bronze sponsor; $500 to $999 a silver sponsor; and $1,000 or more a gold sponsor. Each sponsor will have its company’s name etched on a bronze, silver or gold plaque to be placed on a Wall of Praise in the new facility.
Sponsors will receive other meaningful benefits. Their donations will be tax-deductible. Their business will be featured on The Way’s Facebook page, Twitter account and website. This recognition will include a photo of the owner(s), their comments about The Way, and a short bio of the company. And their business will be listed as a sponsor in a local newspaper ad at the end of the fundraising campaign.
“Few if any of us enjoy fundraising and asking for things,” observes Carl Heckmann, cofounder of The Way. “But we are doing this for the generations of youth whose only hope is Jesus Christ.”
