Streetlight Ministries Annual Golf Tournament 2016 Update
By Marietta Linde
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him,” Colossians 3:17.
Communion of the saints is a wonderful experience in its many forms! We can see this evident inside Streetlight Church when members come to support each other in times of joy and sadness; whether it is a congratulating handshake, a listening ear or a prayer of encouragement. It is wonderful to see Christians using their gifts for the service and enrichment of others!
It is also encouraging to see Christians outside of Streetlight Church coming together, using their gifts to support the work being done at this ministry. This was evident on August 27th at Streetlight’s 3rd annual Golf Tournament.
Now some may say: why is golf important (and that may be true for the non-golfer)? However, when individuals and businesses come together to sponsor and show support, that is important. Without these events, the day-to-day activities, programs, outreach at Streetlight would be very difficult. And the Lord’s work here in Hamilton would be hindered. We want to continue to spread the good news of the Gospel and come together as believers.
So thanks to the many sponsors and over 80 golfers who participated in this year’s event! It was a lovely day at the beautiful Century Pine Golf Course. Together over $10,000 was raised for Streetlight.
In all things, and the events of the past month, we give thanks to our Heavenly Father who so richly bestows all our gifts. May He be praised.
