We Give Thanks
In this season of Thanksgiving all of us at Rising Above Ministries are finding much to be thankful for. Last Tuesday evening we were absolutely overwhelmed by the love, support, and financial generosity of our Cookeville community and beyond. We were humbled to spend the evening surrounded by some of our dearest and longest friends, as well as spread the word about Rising Above's mission and purpose to new friends far and wide.
We could not carry out our mission - to bring the love of God and hope in Christ to special needs families through support, encouragement, inspiration and community - without our faithful donors and volunteers. Your financial support and giving of your time enables us to continue to pour into special needs families both locally in the Upper Cumberland and across the United States. We are able to create and sustain events like Easter Eggstravaganza, Heroes' Ball, By The Brook, Evening at Brookside, and so many more. We are able to write Bible study curriculum and grow our Connect Group ministry. We are able to truly lift up the special needs community...because of you and your giving - whether financial giving or giving of hours in your day.
So today, in this season of gratitude, we just want to say thank you. Thank you for giving, thank you for sowing seed into this ministry, and above all thank you for loving us so well. We could not ask for a more encouraging community of donors and volunteers.
