Over the last 21 years, our church has raised almost $650,000 to benefit over 22 different beneficiaries on a local, national, and global level. We are now in our 22nd year of FOTH, raising funds for grants for 14 organizations that our Outreach Ministries support.
FOTH is also a coming together of our whole parish to have fun and fellowship. We work hard to have a quality event that will not only bring us together for a great party with a catered dinner and socializing, but to inform you about the incredible work that these non-profit organizations do to help those in great need. We are fundraising to support them and to do the work that we are called to do.
We do have fun: This event involves a large number of volunteers who have a great time working together. It is a great opportunity for newcomers to jump in and meet people. Singles are very welcome. We have a different theme each year and we decorate the parish hall and patio according to our theme. Some of us even get into the spirit of the night by wearing costumes, so grab some beads and put on a mask and have a blast. Of course, we’ll take you as your fabulous self. Invite your friends to join us. We have extra invitations.
