Help Urban Light Reach More Fathers and Children Through Online Resources

Ticket Details

Due to the current unprecedented times, this year we are planning a virtual fundraising event for May 4, 2021. This year's theme is May the Fourth be with Urban Light Ministries. It is a play on the event date and the second highest-grossing film franchise of all time, Star Wars®. "Our goal is the raise $30,000 for the further development of online programming for The Sonshine Clubs and our Fatherhood Ministry." To reach this goal, we are asking for sponsorships from local businesses and individuals such as yourself.

The virtual event starts at 6:00 pm and includes a family cooking demonstration and family meal where you can participate at home. Click here for the recipe and cook along with the Greene family. The food for the meal is being donated by your local Kroger stores and may be picked up at the Derr Rd. Kroger location on Sunday, May 2nd. While the food is cooking enjoy music by Geoffrey Walker. Name the tunes being played to enter a drawing for gift cards.

Urban Light's mission is to turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to our Heavenly Father. Social distancing during the pandemic has meant that we have not been able to minister in-person. But as we know, God is good ... and He is ahead of us and right on time! So, we've been using this "in-person pause" to work hard on programming like the POPS 101 online fatherhood course In English and Spanish, a virtual Sonshine Club for kids and parents, and other impactful projects.
As you might imagine, video production is expensive (and we're not George Lucas). Therefore, we are trusting God to supply our every need every step of our way down this new and exciting path. By lending your support to this virtual May the Fourth event, you will be helping to strengthen families and enrich the lives of children in our community and beyond, as we have been endeavoring to do for nearly 3 decades.

We would like to thank our major sponsors Springfield Kroger Stores, Modern Woodman Fraternal Financial and Lee's Chicken. Also a big thank you to all of our sponsors including Stuckey Accounting, Reliable Home Improvements of Ohio, Wallace & Turner Insurance, Lisa and PJ Miller, Fourman Insurance, Elliott Insurance, Sunny Dingra Real Estate, ARC Staffing,and Real Esate II.
