35th Anniversary Banquet
The Downtown Rescue Mission began meeting needs in the Huntsville, Alabama area since 1975. Thirty- five years after its inception, it has moved to a new location, expanded its umbrella of ministries and now meets twenty to twenty-five times the amount of needs than it originally met. It is awe-inspiring to see how God has used the Mission to change thousands of lives with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are so blessed to be able to do His will here in the Tennessee Valley!
Our 35th Anniversary Banquet is scheduled for Saturday, August 7, 2010, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Mission. What a celebration we will have! Beginning at 5:00 p.m., attendees are welcome to hang out in our Fellowship Hall and enjoy food catered by 801 Franklin. At 6:30 p.m. the anniversary program takes off with an amazing time of praise and worship lead by the Capshaw Baptist Church’s praise band. If you have never seen them perform before, you have missed out on an awesome, intimate time of worship. Their praise rocks the house! Following this time will be our residential women’s expressive worship team, who mime the lyrics to popular contemporary worship songs. It is such a blessing to see how far God has brought these ladies and how He uses them to bring glory to His Name. Bringing the message will be none other than Mr. Rick Burgess from the popular morning show Rick and Bubba. Upon leaving, there is a good chance those in attendance will leave with some really cool goodies!
Join us for a wonderful time of meeting new people, worshiping our God and Savior and rejoicing over God’s work here at the Downtown Rescue Mission for 35 years!
Friends of the Friendless Banquet
If you have somebody in your life who gives to you all the time, what would you want to do for them? Give back to them, right? We wanted to do the same thing several years ago. “Friends of the Friendless” is special group of individuals who give to the Mission on a regular basis. Because of these peoples’ consistent investment in our ministry and overall mission, we created a banquet solely for this group of donors.
The annual Friends of the Friendless Banquet will be in the Mission’s Fellowship Hall. Guests will enjoy meeting DRM staff members and other donors, eating a delicious, catered meal, listening to several resident men and women testimonies and watching our annual awards ceremony (see winners below). This is always a night of fun, good food and entertainment. It’s our way of saying “Thank You” to all the wonderful people who make DRM a possibility. If you would like to join our Friends of the Friendless group, please give us a call.
