There are many Alpha Grand Rapids (AGR) events you can participate in throughout the year! Whether it’s hosting a table at the Annual Banquet, using your Facebook page to raise donations for the Walk for Life, or inviting a speaker to your church for Sanctity of Human Life Month, showing your support for this life-giving organization can take many forms. Make sure to follow us on Facebook for information about upcoming events!
Sanctity of Human Life Month
January is America’s National Sanctity of Human Life month. AGR would love to provide your church with a complimentary speaker to address your whole congregation during a Sunday service or meet with a Sunday School class or small group. We also offer a promotional video and/or bulletin inserts that can be used as tools to help your church recognize the issue of abortion and learn more about how to get involved in the pro-life movement.
Walk for Life
Bring your family, friends, and neighbors to this fun event that raises funds and awareness for AGR. The Walk for Life is held at Cornerstone University every year in May, typically the weekend before Memorial Day. Create or join a team, raise funds using social media or a pledge form, and join us for a wonderful morning of family-friendly activities. Kids can enjoy the bounce house, face painting, and balloon decorating. Snacks and coffee are provided, along with the chance to win one of our door prize items! This event happens rain or shine – we have a blast even if we are jumping in puddles during the walk! Click here for more information.
The Annual Banquet is our biggest fundraising event of the year. This beautiful evening happens in mid-October at Frederik Meijer Gardens. Hundreds of people join together to hear inspiring stories, learn the most up-to-date information about what’s happening at AGR, and enjoy a delicious meal in a gorgeous setting. Consider becoming a Corporate Sponsor or Table Host to help underwrite the cost of this event and purchase a table to fill with family and friends that you feel will be passionate about this cause. Contact Us for more information about hosting a table or becoming a Corporate Sponsor. General Admission tickets for the Annual Banquet go on sale in early September.
Christmas Open House
Typically held in the first week of December, the Christmas Open House is a great holiday event. Tour our beautifully decorated building and experience AGR first-hand through stories and activities (and we have festive foods, too!). Meet volunteers, staff, and supporters of AGR and hear about the many lives that have been impacted over the year.
Our staff is happy to speak on behalf of AGR in your church, small group, classroom, or other setting. Topics can include the specific services AGR provides, the importance of the pro-life movement in our culture, ways to get involved in the ministry, and more. Contact Us if you have a speaking engagement in mind, and let’s talk more about what we can do!
