There will be plenty of games for the kids, a live auction, and a Selfie photo booth! We are also bringing back our 3 awards categories this year! Our first category is the church who has the most attendance of runners and/or walkers. Then your church can participate in the Fastest church based on your top 5 runners that cross the finish line. We, of course, could not leave out our pastors so we created the Fastest Pastor category. So what happens if you win one or all of these categories? For the 2 church categories, there will be a trophy awarded which you get to keep for a year! The catch is that you’ll have to redeem the trophy at next year’s race! Your Fastest Pastor will receive a certificate that is theirs to keep along with bragging rights for a whole year! You will also get your church’s name on the back of the t-shirts for next year’s race! There are several ways you can register for this event!

Alpha Women’s Resource Center Annual Fundraising Banquet
October 12th, 2017
Seating begins at 5:30 p.m.
Dinner and Program 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Menu: To be announced
Come grow with us! The Annual Alpha Banquet will be held at H.W. Pearce Memorial Park at the Community House. The address is 346 Vanity Park Dr., Jackson, AL 36545.
We have the honor of hearing a special speaker, who is an Evangelist, Pro-Life Advocate, Author, Recording Artist, passionate Worship Leader, and dynamic Speaker, Steventhen Holland! He truly ministers from the overflow of his heart!
In his book, The Journey: Brokenness to Wholeness, he shares his amazing story. His life is the result of the rape of an eighteen-year-old mentally challenged young woman. Incredibly, despite his mother’s lack of intellectual ability, homelessness, and a society that was constantly pressuring her to abort him, he survived. However, his mother couldn’t care for him and placed him in foster care, where he was later adopted. He wouldn’t be reunited with his birth mother for over twenty-seven years.
Steventhen’s journey is one filled with hurt, loss and pain. Despite the brokenness he has experienced, he travels the country sharing the hope and purpose of life that can only be found through a relationship with Christ. Steventhen’s story is a powerful story of adoption, love, and God’s perfect plan!
Steventhen currently lives in Northwest Alabama with his wife, Rachel, and their three beautiful daughters, Isabella, Eliana and Kadence, who are truly an amazing gift from God!
Please join the Alpha Women’s Resource Center in welcoming Steventhen as he shares the vision of the center! Thank you!
