Girls Are Powerful is here to remind girls of their beauty, influence and worth -- and what better time than 2017? Uptown Church is joining Shawntan Howell of Girls Are Powerful in a night of shared story and your ideas to further the important truth that girls are indeed powerful. Will you be generous with your ideas on June 25th?
This is an event to generate ideas. So we ask that you leave your checkbook at home.
(Thank you to The Midtown Company for training us in the art of friend-raising.)
Uptown Church recognizes an acute need for change.
It’s our experience that people find little to no value in the church as an institution. We also believe institutions cannot love people, only people can love people. We have a hunch that happens through the rubbing of elbows, sharing of space and concern for similar values in the community. That's when we can offer the nudge, to say, “God is present in the very things valued by this community.”
We believe hosting Friendraisers for local non-profits and businesses is one of the many ways to start the conversation about the value of shared ideas, a neighborhood, and the beautiful people that constitute the Church.
