Spring Banquet

Agape Christian Academy’s

Annual Spring Banquet:

An Evening with Mark Gregston

Has Been Cancelled

Dear Friends of Agape:

The heart of man plans his ways, but the Lord establishes his steps – Proverbs 16:9

On March 13 Agape cancelled our 15th Annual Spring Banquet An Evening with Mark Gregston scheduled for April 3 at Parkside Church. It was with a heavy heart we took this step of obedience in response to an order by the Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton limiting such gatherings to protect the health and safety of Ohioans.

Each school year we count on income from our two major events to help us meet our operating costs. This year we had planned on $25,000 of income from An Evening with Mark Gregston. That was OUR plan but clearly not God’s. He was not surprised by this cancellation. We trust Him to provide for our needs regardless of these circumstances.

Even though you can’t attend our banquet, you can still make a banquet contribution and help us raise the $25,000 we were counting on from the event to meet our operating expenses for the school year.  Thank you to the friends of Agape who had already purchased tickets, bought host packages and made contributions prior to the cancellation.

If you would like to make a banquet gift at this time, you can send it to Agape Christian Academy at 14220 Claridon Troy Road, Burton OH 44021. You can mail a check or generate an electronic check through your bank. We are collecting our mail and are able to receive your gift.

During these unprecedented times, we are continuing to operate and serve our 250 students in Preschool through High School. While our buildings have no students filling our classrooms and hallways, our teachers, staff and school leadership are still working on site and from home providing academic content and instruction through distance learning.

We are so grateful for the many friends of Agape who have supported our banquets over the past 14 years. While we can’t share dinner together at the event we can still celebrate the Lord’s work at Agape. Thank you for considering a donation to Agape’s 15th Annual “Cancelled” Spring Banquet.

What a privilege it is to continue to serve the Lord during these difficult times.

In His Service
