Special thanks to Zeb and Evelyn Moss!
You hosted a House Party!
On July 23rd Zeb and Evelyn invited WMU Leaders from their association to a House Party. Over lunch, I shared about the exciting things the Lord is doing through WMU NC and answered questions. Zeb then shared why he and Evelyn have chosen to financially support WMU and invited their guests to do the same.
The enthusiasm was contagious resulting in creative ideas for not only increasing personal giving to WMU NC, but also creative ideas encouraging others to give as well. Everyone left excited about the possibilities of what can happen if we all pull together to financially support the mission and ministries of WMU NC.
So, here’s my question for you … Would you consider hosting a House Party this fall?
When you host a House Party, you are simply inviting your friends to hear “What’s Happening With WMU NC” and provide an opportunity for them to financially connect with our mission and invest in our future.
Who can host a House Party? You can! If you love WMU NC and believe that we all have time, talent, and treasure to give to the cause of missions, you are a perfect person to host a House Party.
Where should I have a House Party? You can certainly have it in your home. But you could also team up with a friend and host it in her home. You could have it in the clubhouse of your community, at a local coffee shop, or at a restaurant. The goal is to have your House Party in a location that is comfortable for you and your guests.
Who should you invite? You can invite anyone you think would like to hear what’s happening with WMU NC and may be interested in making a financial gift to further the mission and ministries of our organization.
What happens at a House Party? At the party, you welcome your guests, make introductions, and perhaps offer light refreshments. I share a brief presentation on “What’s Happening with WMU NC” and offer an opportunity for people to ask questions. Then you share why you have chosen to invest in the mission and ministries of WMU NC and ask your guests to join you in donating to our organization. People are welcome to make a donation on the spot, or they may take home a brochure and envelope to consider their contribution.
How long does a House Party last? Really, the program is only about 45 minutes. Some people linger, while others scoot out to make it back to work or get home to children.
Why should you host a House Party? Because you believe in WMU NC and want to see our organization move forward with vitality. This is a fun way of supporting WMU NC, catching up on the latest happenings, and sharing our mission and ministries with others. And, as a little bonus … I’ll give everyone who hosts a House Party this fall a “shout-out” in the winter edition of Tarheel Talk and in our monthly e-newsletters. It’s a win-win for everyone!
