Family Movie Night!


you're invited movie night

Join us for food (desserts, drinks and POPCORN!!!), raffle prizes and

the classic movie everyone loves

“The Swiss Family Robinson”

Friday, June 14th at 6pm


Grab some refreshments…  We just scored a real theater popcorn popper to use for the night!  Also, some amazing baker friends are making cookies and desserts.  We’ll have some candy choices too.  So save a couple bucks for refreshments and grab a seat.

Feel free to bring bean bags, pillows, or blankets to cozy up (we’ll have chairs if you prefer).

KIDS! Bring in some coins to donate and get a raffle ticket!  We’ll raffle off a bunch of prizes before the movie and during intermission. (Our kids did this for the Lovely Auction and it was a highlight of our week.  The kids worked hard cashing in our pop cans to fill their change jars.  I also passed out coins to the kids each time they said or did something kind, giving or helpful.  They loved being able to tangibly take part and had such giving hearts! They truly understood that they are helping bring kids home to their new families.  LOVE IT.)

We’ll give a quick update on where we are in the adoption process and a share a couple exciting tidbits on what the Lord is up to in our lives. Then we’ll get the movie rolling!

We know that the Lord has a purpose and a plan for our child(ren) and is moving mountains in this adoption journey.  We’d be honored if your family would grab our hands as we strive to bring our child(ren) home.

Suggested Movie Night Donation: $5-10 per person or $20 per family.

We don’t want anyone to miss out on the fun because of money, so this is just a suggested donation amount.  Conversely, if your heart is burning for orphans and you feel led to give more, we are blessed and get closer to bringing our little one(s) home by every penny.

See you Friday, June 14th at 6pm upstairs in the Grant Room at Broadway Commons (1300 Broadway St. NE, Salem)… it’s going to be FUN!


Thank you!


Thank you so much to the lovely ladies who came to make mosaic flower pots!  What a crazy, fun night!

I feel like you are a page in our kiddo(s)’ baby book.  A book that is beginning to take shape with each page overflowing with love as you fight alongside us.  I can’t wait to show our child(ren) how the Lord orchestrated events and called people to join us in bringing them home.

Each and every one of you is a blessing.

Thank you friends!
