Want to support Back to School as an INVITE event?

Our invite team is holding a raffle - and they need your help. Because Cider Mill families have limited access to high-speed internet and electronic devices, INVITE Epworth is holding a raffle of iPad Mini's and an annual subscription to high-speed internet. We are hoping to get enough contributions to have 3 iPad Mini's ($370 each) and 3 high-speed internet packages(cost varies). INVITE is asking for your contribution to INVITE DISCRETIONARY for these 6 items.

Raffle tickets will be given out freely on Saturday, August 21 as backpacks, school supplies and food are shared. Raffle drawings will occur only for those present on Sunday for worship holding a ticket. INVITE is inviting YOU EPWORTH, to join us onsite at Cider Mill on Saturday, August 21 at 5:30pm to hand out raffle tickets, meet people, and encourage families to get a Sunday ride to church on August 22.

Please consider supporting this important part of Back to School

Remember to mark your contribution INVITE DISCRETIONARY so that it goes towards iPads and internet instead of the general school supplies.
