Celebrate the Light: Partner Appreciation Dinner

Celebrate the Light: Partner Appreciation Dinner

Thursday, November 16, 2017, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Location: University Baptist Church (UBC) , 16106 Middlebrook Dr, Houston, TX US 77059

It is a UBC tradition to engage with some of our local ministry partners during the holiday season. We want to provide opportunities for groups to serve together and to participate with staff members and clients from those agencies with the overall goal of sharing together the joy that is “God with Us”, Emmanuel. We call this endeavor “Celebrate the Light,” which reminds us of our past history with “Lighthouse of Hope” while also pointing us to a new era of intimate, group-based involvement through service, hospitality, and giving. 


Partner Appreciation Dinner

Date of event: November 16th (Thursday) 
Event time (not including prep): 6-8pm

Event Description: Host 100 staff members from four agencies (Bay Area Turning Point, The Bridge, Beltway 8 Crisis Pregnancy Center, Anchor Point) for a meal and an appreciation event that celebrates the good work they are doing on our behalf as the hands and feet of Jesus.
